EBRT for multiple myeloma

EBRT for multiple myeloma

For multiple myeloma patients, EBRT can be used to destroy myeloma cells and stop them from growing, and also to help reduce pain from bone damage.

Specific advantages of EBRT for multiple myeloma include the following:

  • It’s a fast, painless outpatient procedure. A typical radiation treatment lasts a few minutes.
  • Unlike chemotherapy, which circulates throughout the body, EBRT for Hodgkin lymphoma is targeted to a specific area.
  • By targeting tumors with higher doses of radiation, EBRT helps minimize damage to healthy tissues and reduce side effects.

Helping you maintain your quality of life

Your care team anticipates and proactively manages the side effects of radiation therapy for multiple myeloma. Before, during and after your treatment, you’ll receive integrative oncology services (e.g., nutrition therapy, naturopathic medicine, pain management, oncology rehabilitation) designed to keep you strong and nutritionally fortified, reduce the side effects of radiation and promote your overall well-being.
