Patients with tumor wounds have many symptoms that impair their quality of life and their general condition. Hemorrhaging is one of them. It can be a challenge for the caregivers and the medical team and will have an impact on the patient. There is no consensus on the management of this symptom, but the literature provides some food for thought. Simple measures can be easily implemented depending on the patient's risk factors, the wound and the oncological context.
