Doctors from Geneva university hospitals discovered a surprising phenomenon: cancer patients who had severe covid disease had a sharp decrease in cancer pain. Until now, the combination of coronavirus and oncology has only suggested a worsening of the human condition.

An article about the discovered phenomenon was published in the journal PAIN, the leading international scientific journal dedicated to the study of pain.

The unusual phenomenon was noticed by a multidisciplinary team of doctors at the University Hospitals of Geneva, led by Dr. Lisa Hentch, Senior Resident of the Department of Palliative Medicine.

They observed three cancer patients – men aged 67 to 84 years, experiencing severe pain that could not be relieved by opioids.
