The treatment of multiple myeloma is highly personalized at John Theurer Cancer Center, part of Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey. Some people have diseases that have the potential to turn into multiple myeloma. These “precursor” disorders include smoldering multiple myeloma and monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS). If you were diagnosed with one of these disorders, you may have been surprised because they don’t cause any symptoms. Our doctors take a conservative approach to treating patients with smoldering multiple myeloma and MGUS. We’ll monitor you and let you know if or when you may benefit from treatment.
