Understanding Your Diagnosis
Myeloma can cause bone pain, fractures, and weakness. These may be symptoms of other bone disorders, so your doctor will use X-rays, blood and urine tests, and biopsy to confirm your diagnosis.
Deciding on Treatment
Your treatment plans depends on your age and health, and the extent of the disease. You may need surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of these.
