Different agents have shown benefit compared with placebo or no treatment. While in unselected patients, comparison between zoledronic acid and pamidronate did not show a significant difference, exploratory analyses showed that in patients with osteolytic lesions or hypercalcemia, zoledronic acid is superior to pamidronate.

Recent advances in cancer therapies, especially immunotherapy, have drastically impacted cancer treatment and survival. These advances engender earlier diagnosis and longer survival. Increased survivorship and novel therapies bring new challenges including symptom clusters and pain syndromes as well as unknown long-term and late effects of both disease and treatment. Assessment of symptoms as well as treatment are challenging as pharmacologic approaches must consider the treatment, interactions with treatment as well as long-term impact on the patient.
