Many people wrongly think that palliative/supportive care is just for people who are dying. In fact, people with any type of metastatic cancer can benefit from palliative/supportive care at any time during their treatment. For this reason, palliative/supportive care is often recommended early in your treatment plan.

If palliative/supportive care is started early, you can have your needs addressed quickly, which can improve your quality of life immediately and help prevent or reduce problems later on. Early palliative/supportive care can also improve your survival.
