I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in February of this year. My doctor said that he's going to delay treatment. My questions are, I've been having bone pain in my lower hip and upper thigh for about the past month and a half, could the myeloma be causing this? Also, does myeloma cause problems this quickly? I'm really scared and don't know what to do or expect.
Multiple myeloma is a cancer that starts in plasma cells in bone marrow. As the cancer advances it causes bone or back pain, bleeding problems, brittle bones that can break easily, fatigue due to anemia, fever, breathlessness etc.Your symptoms could be explained by multiple myeloma. This disease is closely watched in people who have mild disease or where the diagnosis is not certain .It is best to consult an experienced oncologist and start treatment at the earliest. Do write to us again on how you are doing.
Take care and best regards!
