Palliative treatment is designed to relieve symptoms, and improve your quality of life. It can be used at any stage of an illness if there are troubling symptoms, such as pain or sickness. It can also be used to reduce or control the side effects of cancer treatments. In advanced cancer, palliative treatment might help someone to live longer and to live comfortably, even if they cannot be cured. The treatment is not limited to painkillers and anti sickness drugs. Cancer treatments can also reduce or get rid of symptoms. Palliate Therapy can help to reduce pain by shrinking a tumor and reducing pressure on nerves or surrounding tissues. Treatments used in this way include chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, biological therapy, radiofrequency ablation, and cryotherapy.
