Answer

SP is a highly radiosensitive tumor and most patients undergo radiation therapy as the first line of treatment, resulting in an excellent local control rate. [2] The risk of recurrence or progression to myeloma within 3 years is approximately 10% for patients with SP versus 20% to 60% for patients who have SP with minimal marrow involvement. [1]
