Abstract The goal of this study was to identify the symptoms of patients with advanced cancer. One hundred consecutive patients referred to the Palliative Care Service at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation were studied using a standard tool that included questions on 38 specific symptoms. The most common symptoms were pain, weight loss, and anorexia. Significant findings also included that women had more frequent and severe gastrointestinal complaints than men. These do not appear to be related to specific cancer primary sites.
