Abstract

Over the last two decades, the concept of "palliative" has changed due to the pivotal role of multidisciplinary approach and chemotherapy. Incurable CRC patients may be asymptomatic or present various symptoms from dyspepsia to life-threatening conditions such as malignant obstruction, perforation, and lower gastrointestinal bleeding which needs emergency surgical intervention. The overall survival is still the main endpoint of palliative management in CRC patients. But the quality of residual life affected by surgery, chemotherapy, and any other palliative treatment should not be underestimated but should be an immensely important issue. Multidisciplinary approach is needed for appropriate management to control the symptoms and to improve the quality of life of patients with disease progression and incurable CRC.
