In brief: Yes
Tramadol is used by many oncologists and palliative care physicians if the pain is mild to moderate and the patient/physician is trying to hold off on narcotic pain medications for whatever reason.
Usually if increased doses of tramadol don't help cancer pain, narcotic pain medications are usually started.
