Multiple Myeloma Prognosis

Multiple Myeloma Survival Rates at Roswell Park

In the United States as a whole, 50.7% of multiple myeloma patients are still alive five years after diagnosis. However, that percentage is higher — around 71% — for people diagnosed at an early stage, and lower — around 48% — for those diagnosed after the cancer has spread to other parts of the body.

At Roswell Park, we compare our survival data with data collected nationally by the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) program. The graph above compares survival rates of multiple myeloma patients treated at Roswell Park with SEER data of the survival rates for multiple myeloma patients across the nation.
