my survival aging?
The prognosis for a patient with good-risk myeloma (that is, with no high-risk genetic mutations) is excellent. Many patients these days are surviving into a second or even third decade with myeloma. Current survival statistics indicate that one third of all myeloma patients survive beyond ten years. It's not possible, of course, to tell you, as an individual, how long you will survive.
Please don't hesitate to write to us at the Hotline if we can answer any other questions.
