Abstract

Supportive care in multiple myeloma (MM) can have a major impact on quality of life and the survival outcomes of MM patients. In this review, we will focus on disease and treatment related toxicities experienced by MM patients and what are the best approaches to date to help mitigate the effects. We will specifically focus on a practical approach to managing bone disease, thrombosis, infection risk, peripheral neuropathy, dermatologic complications, gastrointestinal and ocular toxicities, and fatigue in MM.
