About Multiple Myeloma

Multiple myeloma is a type of cancer formed by cancerous plasma cells. Normal plasma cells are found in the bone marrow and are an important part of the body’s immune system. When plasma cells grow out of control, they can form a tumor, usually in the bone marrow. This type of tumor is called a myeloma, and if there are many tumors they are called multiple myeloma. Having too many plasma cells can cause problems in the bone marrow, where all blood cells are made. The bone marrow may not be able to make enough red blood cells, platelets, or normal white blood cells. This can cause problems such as anemia (shortage of red blood cells), bruising or bleeding, or leukopenia (shortage of white blood cells) that makes it hard for the body to fight infections.
