Cough is a common symptom in palliative medicine and the causes may be multifactorial. When problematic it invariably affects quality of life. Evaluation must begin with a detailed history and examination with consideration given to further tests and imaging. Treatment must begin with the identification and correction of any reversible causes in addition to emperic treatment. A logical approach and regular monitoring is advised.
