To treat cancer, you may receive one or more different treatments. The aim of most cancer treatment is to achieve remission, which means all signs and symptoms of cancer have disappeared. When remission is unlikely, treatment can help to relieve symptoms to help you feel as comfortable as possible, and may allow you to live longer. This is called palliative treatment.
