Abstract

Dyspnea, defined as a sensation of uncomfortable awareness of breathing, is one of the most frightening, distressing, and common symptoms experienced by patients with cancer. Dyspnea has many causes; however, fast, safe, and effective relief of the symptom is possible. Symptomatic management of dyspnea can be started concurrently with treatment directed at removing its underlying causes.
