Literature reviews very little data on the management of oral cancer pain nonpharmacologically. Successful management of pain control needs to be tackled by a multimodal approach. There is no confirmation of the effectiveness of nonpharmacological ways as relaxation, imagery, hypnosis, distraction, and biofeedback for the treatment of oral cancer pain.
