When you are first diagnosed with cancer, including multiple myeloma, you probably have many questions. You may ask: Do I have a multiple myeloma specialist close to my home? If not, am I able to travel? Should I consider participating in a clinical trial if I am eligible and my doctor recommends it?

Take a look at the various medical professionals who assist in the treatment of multiple myeloma, from hematologists to specialists. Finding the right provider is a crucial step in the treatment process.
