If it affects the arteries violation occurs Power tissues (ischemia), which is followed by their death – necrosis. These changes are perceived as pain.

If the veins are compressed, the pain are less intense, as trophic disorders; in the tissues are less pronounced. At the same time, venous outflow violation causes congestion, edema, and tissue forms a pain impulse.

In addition, the visceral pain can be associated with concomitant diseases, violation of the outflow of biological fluids during compression of the body or tumor invasion podzheludoch ducts­hydrochloric gland, liver, urinary tract.

The most pronounced painful reaction at evil­quality of malignancy associated with the compressed-Niemi or germination of various nervous wreath product­plants, is roots, nerve trunks and spinal cord. Thus, when a malignant tumor of the pancreas severe pain associated with compression of adjacent solar plexus.

When brain lesion pain may be associated with sprouting or compression, as well as with increased intracranial pressure.

Without special events can not hope for the disappearance of pain in malignant tumors, and the sooner they are started, the better is the result. The best analgesic effect – this surgical vmesha­ments. Removal of tumor-bearing bodiesor tissue results in cure of the disease and Tro­neniyu its accompanying pain response.

In patients with advanced forms of zlokache­governmental tumor pain becomes chronic. Constant feeling of a man in pain on the background of tumor progression and growth of fi­phe- ailment leads to depression, Naru­sheniyu sleep, rise of feelings of fear, helplessness and despair.

To achieve adequate analgesia using the optimum doses of drugs follows­blowing respect the fundamental principles leche­Nia chronic pain in cancer patients.

Acceptance by the hour rather than on demand. complied­of this principle makes it possible to achieve the maximum analgesic effect with a minimal daily dose of painkiller. Reception “on demand” drug ultimately entails the use of much larger doses as analgesic concentration in the blood plasma falls for its recovery and achieve a satisfactory level requires additional analgesia The amount of drug.
