These pages are for people with myeloma, and for people who know someone with myeloma.

Being told that you, or a loved one, have any type of cancer can be one of the hardest things you’ll ever have to hear. There’s sure to be a lot of information to take in.

We hope these pages will help you to understand your condition and feel more in control. We’ll try to answer as many of the questions you might have along the way as we can – from symptoms through to tests, treatment and living with myeloma, and where you can get support.

Every person is different, with a different medical history. So when you’re deciding what’s right for you, discuss your situation with your specialist as well as getting information from this website and other places.

Our Support Line team are just a phone call or email away if you’d like to talk. They’re available Monday-Friday 10am-4pm on 0808 2080 888 or at
