Extramedullary Myeloma

By

During the course of their disease, multiple myeloma patients some­times develop what physicians call either “extram­edullary disease,” “extra­medullary plasmacytomas,” or “extra­medullary myeloma.”… “Extramedullary disease can occur on its own, as a solitary extramedullary [tumor], in a patient who does not have myeloma,” explained Dr. S. Vincent Rajkumar, a myeloma specialist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
