Dealing with pain in secondary breast cancer

This video highlights the effect of pain with secondary breast cancer and talks about how earlier access to palliative care can help control this symptom.

Secondary breast cancer is when cancer cells have spread from the breast to other parts of the body. It can often be controlled, sometimes for several years, but can no longer be cured.

The video was released in support of Secondary Breast Cancer Awareness Day on 13 October 2014 and features quotes from people affected by secondary breast cancer.

If you are affected by this issue in the UK and want to talk to somebody, please call our free Helpline on 0808 800 6000.
