9/11 Multiple Myeloma 

It has been established that rescue workers, first responders, and other survivors involved with 9/11 were exposed to elements that increase the risk for cancers, which includes 9/11 multiple myeloma. If you or a loved one suffer from multiple myeloma, a 9/11 benefits attorney can help you understand your eligibility for benefits under the World Trade Center Health Program (WTCHP) and the Victim Compensation Fund (VCF). The team at Pitta & Baione is well versed in obtaining benefits for September 11th cancers and ready to discuss your case with you and help you with your claim for benefits under these programs.

Understanding 9/11 Multiple Myeloma 

Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells in the body. The risk for multiple myeloma increases with other plasma diseases as well. Not everyone who has multiple myeloma has obvious signs and symptoms, but some common symptoms include damage to the bones since the plasma and bone marrow are affected by this cancer. Bone pain, bone weakness and bone fractures may be common. In addition to bone issues, variations in blood counts may occur since the plasma is affected, such as anemia.

Other common symptoms that result from conditions caused by multiple myeloma include:

  • Dehydration
  • Kidney issues
  • Severe constipation
  • Nerve damage
  • Confusion
  • Damage to the heart
  • Liver issues

Treatment for 9/11 Multiple Myeloma 

Treatment for multiple myeloma will depend on how advanced the cancer is when it is discovered. If the cancer is discovered early, radiation therapy may be successful. Chemotherapy may be an option to combat 9/11 multiple myeloma as well. Other restorative treatments include blood transfusions or stem cell treatment to return the body to a more balanced state able to support blood, bone, and organs in the body. Antibiotics can be administered to fight infections and other medications may be used to treat other associated ailments and symptoms.

Christopher Baione is the Partner at the firm who assisted me with my legal needs. During a very difficult time in my life he was very patient, listened to my concerns, always had time to answer my questions and was available via phone or email. I hope to not need to call him again, but if I do, he will be the attorney I will be visiting. Excellent attorney. 5 stars from me
