HealthTree University: Myeloma Genetics (1/3)

As we learn more about multiple myeloma, we are understanding how myeloma genetics affect your risk level, how the genetics of the disease change over time, and we are finding more ways to use this information to direct treatment. Watch the HealthTree University videos to learn more about this important aspect of your disease. You can watch the entire course at

18.01    What is genetic testing in myeloma? What is the purpose of doing genetic testing?


18.02    Why is it important for myeloma patients to know the cytogenetic abnormalities of their cancer?


18.03    Do all my myeloma cells same chromosomal mutations? What is clonal heterogeneity? (Part 1)


18.04    Do all my myeloma cells same chromosomal mutations? What is clonal heterogeneity? (Part 2)


We’d like to thank our faculty who donated their time in creating these videos, including:

  • Gareth Morgan, MD, PhD
  • Martin Kaiser, MD
  • Rafael Fonseca, MD
