The perception of pain is part of the defensive functions of the organism. Pain is a warning of the danger of damage to the integrity of the tissues causing adequate defense reaction. According to the World Health Organization about 9 million people in the world suffer from cancer pain and 70-90% of patients in the terminal phase have frequent or constant pain while in the early stages severe pain occurs in 40-50% of patients.
