Pain Management

When a child has cancer, one of his or her greatest fears, and the fear of parents, is pain. Pain is a sensation of discomfort, distress or agony. Because pain is unique to each individual, a child's pain cannot be measured with a lab test or imaging study. Learn more about how we manage a child's pain at Children's National.
