I am seeing that quite a few people on here are recommending a myeloma specialist. The doctor my PCP recommended I see is a hematologist/oncologist with her profile indicating treating Multiple Myeloma and othe r blood dyscrqasias and blood cancers. She is form the Kellogg Cancer Center in Evanston. My question is should i be looking for a person who only specializes in Myeloma.? my moms oncologist/hematologist treated a variety of other cancers.
I go to a MM specialist at NW Medicine in Chicago
Meme, If your hematologist/oncologist treats large number of Myeloma patients and is up on the latest research, that is probably fine. Many people have a second opinion with a Myeloma Specialist and have them on your team so they can direct your care. Myeloma is a complicated disease with different types and subgroups, many treatment plans and New Research and Clinical Trials coming out all of the time. You want a doctor on your team that is close to the new changes. Have a great day! Love, Marcia 🌸
I am seeing a myeloma specialist (two actually) through Illinois Cancer Specialists. One in Elgin and one in Niles.
I have both. My oncologist referred me to a Specialist, because I needed a transplant. Studies show we live longer with a Specialist. I get my treatments with my regular oncologist. I see the Specialist every 6 months now😊
