Learning that you have advanced cancer – cancer that’s growing and might not be responding to treatment – can make you feel lost and afraid. At this point, you may realize the cancer is likely not going away. But being prepared to deal with what can happen toward the end of life can enable you to get the support and care you need so you can have the very best quality of life possible.
This can be a time to focus on physical, spiritual, emotional, and family concerns. Patients and family members often have questions about what might happen during the last stage of life. Understanding what to expect both physically and emotionally might help you live more fully.
