Multiple Myeloma is cancer of the plasma cells in bone marrow.
Cancer occurs when cells in the body divide without control or order. Normally, cells divide in a regulated manner. If cells keep dividing uncontrollably when new cells are not needed, a mass of tissue forms, called a growth or tumor. Plasma cells help the body’s immune system fight disease by producing proteins called antibodies. In Multiple Myeloma, plasma cells grow out of control in the bone marrow and form tumors in the areas of solid bone.
