Insomnia

Insomnia is an extremely common problem for cancer patients. However, many patients fail to report this symptom to their healthcare provider. This likely occurs because insomnia may be viewed as a normal reaction to a cancer diagnosis and treatment.

In order to treat insomnia, the underlying cause must be addressed such as pain, nausea, depression and hot flashes. If the insomnia persists, a combination of pharmacologic and psychological therapy may help.
