Doctors are finding new ways to treat multiple myeloma, a blood cancer that attacks cells in your bone marrow. The FDA approved three new drugs in 2015, and more are in the pipeline.
"The improvements are amazing," says Brion Randolph, MD, hematologist and chief of medical oncology at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Newnan, GA.
"I've already had a few patients I would've had to tell there were no options," he says. Now he says, the new meds are able to extend lives.
