About Myeloma

Myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells, a type of white blood cell found in many tissues of the body, but primarily in the bone marrow. In myeloma, a B lymphocyte, the cell that forms plasma cells, becomes malignant. It grows continuously and forms masses of plasma cells, especially in the marrow, destroying normal blood cell production.

Malignant plasma cells produce an abnormal protein called monoclonal immunoglobulin. Immunoglobulins (or antibodies) are an important part of the body's natural defense against infection because they recognize microbes that invade the body and permit then to be removed and destroyed. The onset of myeloma interferes with normal production of antibodies and makes myeloma patients susceptible to infections.

Often the first symptom of myeloma is bone pain caused by the effects of malignant plasma (myeloma) cells in the marrow. Patients may have anemia, tire more easily and feel weak. Fractures may occur as a result of the weakened bones. Recurrent infections may be an early sign of disease.
