Outcomes in cancer surgery are variable and may be influenced by different factors, including the patient’s and tumor’s biological characteristics, type of anesthesia and surgery, pain management, and other therapies. Surgery is a significant aspect of care for patients, and surgical techniques, as well as type of anesthetics/analgesics used in the perioperative period, may justify better or worse outcomes (survival, tumor dissemination, complications). Pain management is pivotal for cancer patients, both perioperatively and in the chronic period; thus, finding the best approaches for analgesia is of great importance in these patients. Finally, new insights in tumor and patient biology, including new biomarkers and therapeutic approaches, may lead to a higher rate of success while treating patients with cancer.
This Special Issue of Cancers encompasses new research articles and timely reviews on all aspects of cancer anesthesia, surgery, and pain management in cancer patients, including new therapeutic strategies and biomarkers to improve patient outcome.
