How Are MM Lesión Treated In Spine, Ribs And Neck Area?

Induction should help heal the lesions. If they are large or result in compression fractures there is a “cement” they can use between the vertebrae to help strengthen the spine. Otherwise bone builder shots over time should help.

Thanks for the info in this thread. I have both lesions in my civical spine, and skull. Along with arthritis in my lumbar spine.

JD, they treat lesions with chemotherapy or radiation or both. Bisphosphonates, bone strengthening drugs are also used. Some doctors recommend calcium and vitamin d supplements when your myeloma is controlled. Hope this helps 🥰💕
