I am trying to find out information on plasma cell leukemia. My husband has been battling Stage IV oropharyngeal cancer since July. We have had several setbacks and my 47 year old husband has gotten worse and worse. He has had to be in the hospital for hypercalcemia and acute kidney damage. We were called in last week and told David has a second cancer. They are doing tests for either Multiple Myeloma or Plasma Cell Leukemia. They said they have never seen this in a head and neck patient, but David's numbers are really not good. So I guess I am trying to find out information on this cancer. We have an appointment with the hematology oncologist on Monday and will find out for certain which of the two cancers he has. I have found a lot more information on Multiple Myeloma than on the Plasma Cell Leukemia and according to our chemo doctor that is what she was leaning toward. Of course we had more testing that they will have to make the final decision on Monday.
