Supportive Care: IMF Hotline Coordinators Answer Your Questions: "My father was just diagnosed with what the doctor says is early stage asymptomatic multiple myeloma. The doctor doesn’t want to start treatment yet and just wants to follow him. I thought that once you were diagnosed with cancer, the best thing was to treat it as quickly as possible. Why would they just follow my father’s myeloma and not get started with treatment since they found it early?"
