Provision of information and support plays an important role in helping patients and their families come to terms with a diagnosis of myeloma. It also helps them understand more about the disease so that they can make informed decisions about their treatment and care and how best they can live with myeloma.

Myeloma is an individual cancer which has an impact on patients, and their family, physically, emotionally and socially. Therefore, information and support must be tailored to individual needs.

Patient information

Myeloma UK information covers all aspects of myeloma ranging from a basic overview of relevant topics, to Infosheets and frequently asked questions, to more in-depth Infoguides and videos of doctors, nurses and patients talking about myeloma.

All our information is developed by Myeloma Information Specialists and is regularly reviewed by a team of medical professionals.
