If you have recently been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, you may have questions about how your cancer will be treated. Fortunately, many different treatment options are available for this condition, including but not limited to:
- Radiation therapy
- Bone marrow transplant
- Biological therapy.
You may also receive supportive care to control the health problems (such as infections) that can be caused by multiple myeloma. If you have been diagnosed with multiple myeloma but do not have any symptoms, your healthcare provider may recommend holding off on starting treatment; however, your health will be carefully monitored so that treatment can begin when symptoms do appear.
