Brief Answer: It is controllable but not curable. Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for your query. Unfortunately, as of today's date, multiple myeloma is not curable (stage 1 to 3). However, many effective therapies are available which result in good control and patients can survive for years together. Research in this field has been very successful in recent years and it is likely to improve further in the coming years. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer further followup queries, if any.
