Multiple myeloma prognosis

It is no easy task to predict the general outcome of the disease in multiple myeloma since it differs widely between individuals depending on the severity of the disease, their age and their overall health status prior to the disease. Speaking in broad terms, however, the disease has a survival rate ranging from 1-10 years depending on the choice of therapy and the response to initial therapy. Patients who receive stem cell transplantation remain the best in terms of survival and those who develop severe kidney affection or multiple fractures have the worst outcomes.
