Cancer and its treatment often cause side effects. Relieving a person’s symptoms and side effects is an important part of cancer care. This approach is called symptom management, supportive care, or palliative care. Palliative care is any treatment that focuses on reducing symptoms, improving quality of life, and supporting patients and their families. Any person, regardless of age or type and stage of cancer, may receive palliative care.
Pain troubles over half of patients with advanced cancer. Approximately 30% of patients with advanced cancer will not get severe pain, 80% of those who do can achieve good pain relief by the systematic use of oral analgesia, appropriate adjuvant therapies and multi-faceted supportive strategies.
