Abstract Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal malignancies. An estimated 32,300 patients will die of pancreatic cancer in year 2006. It is the tenth most common malignancy in the United States. Despite recent advances in pathology, molecular basis and treatment, the overall survival rate remains 4\% for all stages and races. Palliative care represents an important aspect of care in patient with pancreatic malignancy. Identifying and treating disease related symptomology are priorities. As a physician taking care of these patients it is essential to know these symptoms and treatment modalities. This review discusses symptom management and supportive care strategies. Common problems include pain, intestinal obstruction, biliary obstruction, pancreatic insufficiency, anorexia-cachexia and depression. Success is needed in managing these symptoms to palliate patients with advanced pancreatic cancer. Pancreatic cancer is a model illness to learn the palliative and supportive management in cancer patient. It is important for oncologists to recognize the importance of control measures and supportive measures that can minimize the symptoms of advanced disease and side effects of cancer treatment.
