Do you get a skin rash with multiple myeloma?
While skin rashes are not a hallmark symptom of multiple myeloma, they can occur. The rash might be a direct result of the disease, such as in cases of extramedullary myeloma (where myeloma cells form tumors outside the bone marrow), which can occasionally involve the skin. Additionally, rashes can be side effects of treatments or related to other associated conditions, such as amyloidosis. It’s important for patients to report any new or unusual skin changes to their healthcare provider to determine the cause and get appropriate care.
