What are the chances of recovery in myeloma of the throat ?

My husband may have myeloma of the throat as he has difficulty in swallowing. Can you explain what happens now and what are his chances of a full recovery. Also what sort of treatment is entailed in such a condition please. Thank you, Sharon

Thanks for the query. It is difficut to come to a conclusion about your treatment options without going through your reports, for now if swallowing is casuing too much difficulty u can try putting a ryles tube and feeding him. Meet an onco surgeon and see if he can surgically decompress the oesophagus. Radiation therapy is also an option.
