Myeloma is a type of blood or haematological cancer that starts in white blood cells known as plasma cells. It also known as multiple myeloma because it usually affects multiple areas of the body.

It is more common in older people and affects slightly more men than women.

The Cancer Institute NSW recommends that all people with cancer have their care overseen by a multidisciplinary team (MDT).

Use our Canrefer website to find multidisciplinary teams in NSW and ACT.

Being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful and confusing. Having the right information can help you talk to your cancer care team and be more involved in your care.
