    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Survival Rates?
    An_243126 posted:
    My father was just diagnosed with Lung cancer and Myeloma Cancer. Does anyone know what the survival rate is with both and the process? Some support would be wonderful, I have never experienced such a tragedy.
    georgiagail responded:
    All of this would depend on what stage these cancers are in; for example, are they localized or have they already spread to other parts of the body.

    Have these cancers been staged? Knowing what stage your father is in would be very useful in determining both the treatment and the survival rate.
