Facing Blood Cancer Together
We’re here for everyone affected by blood cancer: whether it’s leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or another blood disorder; whether you’re a patient, family, friend or carer; whether you’re worried about symptoms, in the middle of treatment or adjusting to life afterwards.

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can order free printed copies of our patient information booklets, as well as patient diaries, information on dietary advice and more.
