Understanding Multiple Myeloma

Multiple myeloma is a type of cancer that affects the plasma cells present in the bone marrow. Plasma cells are an important component of the immune system and play a crucial role in fighting off infections. When plasma cells become cancerous and start multiplying abnormally, it leads to multiple myeloma.

Although the exact cause of this condition is unknown, certain factors such as genetic predisposition, aging, exposure to radiation or certain chemicals, and weakened immune system have been associated with an increased risk of developing multiple myeloma.
