About

 

What is Multiple Myeloma?

Myeloma or Multiple Myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells which are responsible for producing antibodies. Abnormal cells accumulate in the bone marrow, which then results to the interference of the production of normal blood cells.

In multiple myeloma, collections of abnormal plasma cells accumulate in the bone marrow, where they interfere with the production of normal blood cells. Most cases of myeloma also feature the production of a paraprotein—an abnormal antibody which can cause kidney problems. Bone lesions and hypercalcemia (high calcium levels) are also often encountered.
