every human being has the right to live in peace and without suffering. basic principle in palliative care is to make the patient feel comfortable and free of suffering and help him live comfortably as long as he survives. he can be made comfortable with good pain relief. Sometimes palliative radiotherapy or palliaitive chemotherapy would do great help. If he is totally against the idea of chemotherapy, good pain relieving measures alone would help him
