The hypogastric block and prolonged neurolysis are recommended for the treatment of pelvic cancer pain. The hypogastric nerve refers to a group of nerve bundles located in front of the L5 and S1 vertebrae. It plays an important role in the regulation of heat and pain. Chemical neurolysis can inhibit its function and thus reduce pain if the diagnostic block was positive. It typically significantly reduces pain for several years, and the patient can reduce the use of other medications.

* During chemical neurolysis, we reduce the function of nerves using alcohol or phenol. It is often applied for deactivating small nerves in cases of cancer-related pain. Generally, its effect lasts for 3 to 6 months.
