Symptoms and diagnosis: myeloma
There are some symptoms you might have before you’re diagnosed with myeloma and some symptoms you might have afterwards. Not everyone will have the same symptoms.
You’ll have a set of tests to confirm whether you have myeloma or not. If you’re diagnosed with myeloma, your healthcare team may then do further tests to ‘stage’ the cancer (see how much it’s developed).
It’s important that you understand your diagnosis – it might be a good idea to ask your consultant to write it down so you can use it if you’re looking for more information or support, or you need to tell other people about it.
