After you’ve been diagnosed with myeloma, you may want to know more about your prognosis − what's likely to happen in the future.

For most people, myeloma responds well to initial treatment but unfortunately it almost always comes back.

There are many treatment options – all aiming for a period of time when there are no signs of myeloma (remission), or when the paraprotein or light chain levels in the blood are lower and stay lower (a plateau, or stable disease phase).

Ask your healthcare team about your prognosis

We have general information about things that might affect your prognosis, but everyone is different. If you want to know about your individual prognosis, your healthcare team are the best people to ask. They know you and your individual situation.
