Multiple Myeloma

Prognosis for Multiple Myeloma

The American Cancer Society estimated that 16,570 people (9,250 men and 7,320 women) would be diagnosed with multiple myeloma in the U.S. during 2006, and that 11,310 men and women would die from the disease during the year.
 
The multiple myeloma prognosis will depend on:
 
  • The stage of multiple myeloma (see Multiple Myeloma Stage)
  • Whether the kidney is damaged
  • Whether the cancer responds to initial treatment or recurs
  • The patient's age and general health.
