Lymphoma and myeloma are two common hematologic malignancies (blood cancers). Lymphoma ranks in the top ten most common malignant tumors in China, while myeloma is the second most common malignant tumor of the blood system. Incidences of myeloma in China are increasing each year.
The onset of malignant tumors can often go by undetected, and symptoms are not typical. Patients diagnosed with such conditions may wonder, “What are the most up-to-date international treatments? How am I going to access the best treatment plan for me?”
To address these needs, Jiahui International Cancer Center and Mass General Cancer Center will jointly open an international second opinion clinic for lymphoma/myeloma patients. The clinic will be open on March 11th 2019, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. at Jiahui International Hospital. At the clinic, patients will be able to:
- receive treatment in a multidisciplinary treatment (MDT) setting, consisting of joint early intervention and decision making by an international, multidisciplinary team
- obtain a second opinion, face to face with international experts on myeloma/lymphoma from Mass General, Harvard’s largest and oldest teaching hospital, without having to travel abroad
- receive a comprehensive and individualized treatment plan collaboratively drawn up by experts at Jiahui International Cancer Center and Mass General Cancer Center
- discuss comprehensive pain management and palliative care options with international experts
