Multiple Myeloma

What to Expect continued...

Treatments to fight it may stop working. If that happens, you may want to focus on making sure you're as comfortable as possible, known as palliative care. You may not be able to control your cancer, but you can control choices about how you'll live your life.

A serious illness is hard to face. It's natural that you'll have questions, concerns, and frustrations. Find the support you need. Others with multiple myeloma may be able to guide you.

Research is underway to get earlier diagnosis and better treatments so people can live longer, fuller lives.
