MULTIPLE MYELOMA OVERVIEW

Multiple myeloma (MM) is a cancer of plasma cells in the bone marrow. Plasma cells are a type of white blood cell that make antibodies to help fight infections. In multiple myeloma, the plasma cells are abnormal and grow out of control. The uncontrolled growth of these cells can lead to bone pain and fractures and an inadequate number of normal, healthy blood cells (white blood cells and red blood cells). These cancer cells also produce large amounts of abnormal proteins, which can cause kidney damage.
