Cancer is an increasing health problem. Each year, nine million people develop cancer, and by the year 2030, this figure is expected to have risen to 15 million. Two thirds of these cases of cancer will be in the developing countries, which have only 5% of the global cancer control resources. Cancer pain relief was recognized as major public health problem in the mid 1980s. Pain is reported at diagnosis in 20-50% of cancer patients, and is experienced by at least 75% of those with advanced cancers. Worldwide at least 4 million people suffer from cancer pain every day.
