Can Multiple Myeloma Spread By Needle Stick Injury?

Can Multiple Myeloma Spread By Needle Stick Injury?

Well, i just pricked by a saline needle of my father's who is suffering from MM. So I was wondering if there is any chances of multiple myeloma to get spread by Needle stick injury?

No, you can't catch myeloma from a needle stick injury. But you can get other things like hepatitis and HIV. Hera, you should be using a needleless system to flush his lines.

Thanks, actually your answer helps me a lot. My father is doing okay with his targetted therapy but recently they did radiotherapy so as a side effect he is suffering from major diarrhoea and that's why to add some fluids he was on saline.
