Intolerable pain: Anytime you have pain which is unbearable or greater than tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen can fix, you should consider being evaluated by a doctor.

Musculoskeletal: With your history of surgery and radiation in the area there may be some nerves trapped or damaged. This can lead to musculoskeletal pain or sparms. It could also have nothing to do with your history and just be something out of the blue. If it persists, ask your oncologist, even have your potassium levels checked. Try ice and a muscle relaxer.
