Abstract/Summary ‘Firstly, do no harm’ – a fundamental principle in the practice of medicine. Opioids have long been the mainstay in the treatment of acute and chronic cancer pain, but can opioids administered to cancer patients during the course of their treatment actually do more harm than good? This chapter examines the current experimental and translational research relating to opioids and their potential effect on cancer recurrence and metastases.
