Treatment Options for Multiple Myeloma

There are a number of treatments available for multiple myeloma, and each has its own unique advantages and disadvantages. Your doctor will recommend treatments based on the stage of your cancer and other factors, but it’s important to think carefully and talk with your doctor about which treatments sound best to you – you’ll need to way the pros and cons of each. The most common treatments for multiple myeloma include:

    • Surgery: Surgical removal of a tumor from the bone
    • Radiation Therapy: Using a system like CyberKnife to target a tumor or cancer sight with precise, high-dose radiation to kill cancer cells.
    • Chemotherapy or Drug-Based Therapy: Using prescription drugs to attack the cancer cells or stimulate the immune system to attack cancer cells
    • Bisphosphonates: Drugs that strengthen the bones, which multiple myeloma can weaken

Plasmapheresis: A treatment that removes the myeloma protein from the blood, helping to suppress the disease

  • Stem Cell Transplants: A process that involves using chemotherapy to kill all or most of the bone marrow, then repopulating the bone marrow with a transplant of stem cells

Every patient is different, and only you and your doctor can decide on the right treatment plan for you. Often, your doctor may recommend combining two or more treatment methods to maximize the chances of successful treatment.
