Welcome to Myeloma News.com!


My name is Pat Killingsworth, and I have multiple myeloma. I am disabled now, but I still work part-time as a freelance medical writer, covering cancer related conferences and interviewing the brightest myeloma experts from around the world. I try and report on the information I gather from a patient's perspective.

HERE IS HOW IT WORKS: Each story features a short description. Below that you will find a headline. If you would like to read more, simply click-on the headline, and it will take you directly to the source. Quick and easy!

I share my opinions about these and other topics on my daily blog: www.MultipleMyelomaBlog.com.

Good luck and remember: Feel good and keep smiling! Pat

Diagnosis delayed for certain cancers and certain patients

"Half the patients who eventually received a diagnosis of multiple myeloma (939 of 1,854 [50.6%]) had three or more visits with their GPs before receiving a referral."
