Treatment Options for Multiple Myeloma

Multiple Myeloma Treatment Orlando
The goal of treatment is to relieve symptoms, avoid complications and prolong life.

People who have mild disease or where the diagnosis is not certain are usually carefully watched without treatment. Some people have a slow-developing form of multiple myeloma that takes years to cause symptoms.

Medications for the treatment of multiple myeloma include:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Transplants
  • Single or combination drug therapies.
  • Drugs are used to reduce bone pain and prevent fractures
  • Radiation therapy may be performed to relieve bone pain or treat a bone tumor.

Two types of bone marrow transplantation may be tried:

  • Autologous bone marrow or stem cell transplantation makes use of one's own stem cells. In younger patients, it has been shown to increase survival.
  • Allogeneic transplant makes use of someone else's stemcells. This treatment carries serious risks.
