Endometrial (Uterine) Cancer - Treatment Overview
Cancer treatment has two main goals: curing cancer and
making your quality of life as good as possible. Palliative care can improve your quality of life by helping you to manage your symptoms. It can also help you with other concerns that you may have when you are living with a serious illness.
For some people who have
advanced-stage cancer, a time comes when treatment to cure cancer no longer
seems like a good choice. This can be because the side effects, time, and costs
of treatment are greater than the promise of cure or relief.
But this isn't the
end of treatment.
It can be hard to decide when to stop treatment aimed
at prolonging your life and shift the focus to end-of-life care. You and your doctor can decide when you may be ready for hospice care.
