If you've been recently diagnosed with multiple myeloma or have been living with this type of bone marrow cancer for a while, you know that there's no one-size-fits-all treatment option. But that's actually good news. There are numerous therapies and medications that can be tailored to your needs.  Whether you're just starting treatment or have experienced a remission and need to re-evaluate your options, it's important to work closely with your doctor. Treatment can vary based on your age, health, symptoms, and other factors.
