USC Surgery / Treatments / Select Palliative Resection of Metastatic Disease

Palliative resection of metastatic disease is a surgical option for some patients with advanced or metastatic cancer with tumors that are symptomatic (severely painful, ulcerated, or fungating). The goal of this surgery would be to increase the patient’s comfort or to lessen the amount of pain caused by the tumor. The decision-making process for this procedure is complex. Not every patient is suitable, but carefully selected patients may benefit from this surgery.
