Once the doctors know the stage of the myeloma, they can plan the best treatment for you. Knowing the stage will also help your doctors predict how the myeloma might respond to treatment.
Myeloma is rarely curable, but it is treatable. Treatment can be used to stop the myeloma developing further, to control symptoms and to improve quality of life. The type of treatment you’re offered will depend on a number of factors, including your general health and how advanced the myeloma is.
