Pain Among Cancer Survivors
ORIGINAL RESEARCH — Volume 17 — July 9, 2020
Prevalence and 95% confidence intervals of current pain related to cancer or cancer treatment by comorbid and behavioral characteristics. Data on hours of sleep per night among cancer survivors from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System were available only for 2014 and 2016 (n = 9,910). Other chronic diseases included were a history of arthritis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, depression, diabetes, heart attack, heart disease, kidney disease, and stroke. Brackets indicate confidence intervals.
