In brief: Depends...

Late stage cancers can cause symptoms due to involvement of tissues in the area of the tumor or distantly.
They can place a large metabolic strain on the body, leading to weight loss, inflammation and fatigue. They can cause blood clots, lower immune system function (leading to increased risk of infections) and wasting. http://www.cancer.net/coping/end-life-care/care-during-final-days.
