The purpose of this study is to find out whether acupuncture treatments can reduce the need for opioid medication when managing pain caused by chemotherapy. The study will compare the effects of adding acupuncture to usual pain management with those of usual pain management alone, in reducing opioid use by relieving pain. Researchers also want to find out more about the effects of acupuncture treatments on other symptoms caused by cancer treatments and quality of life.
