What is Palliative Care?

When a curative approach is not possible as a medical option or prognosis, palliative care or palliation can be offered by an oncologist or other cancer specialist to mitigate a patient’s suffering, extend their life, provide local control of their disease and enhance their overall quality of life.

Palliative care is often compared to “curative care,” which aims to cure the patient of his medical problem.
