Event Description

As individuals navigate the myeloma journey, they encounter a multitude of tests, including bone marrow biopsies, urine tests, genetic tests, and more. After a while, the various tests become routine. However, interpreting these tests and lab results on your own can be challenging. In our upcoming community meeting, members of the HealthTree medical team will discuss crucial aspects, such as determining what to monitor and identifying red flags. Join us to gain insights into myeloma labs and strategies to effectively manage and interpret your test results, enabling you to understand your myeloma condition thoroughly.
