Myeloma

Multiple myeloma or plasma cell myeloma is a cancer that arises from plasma cells (mature lymphocytes) a type of white blood cells. In myeloma plasma cells become abnormal, proliferate and from tumours that accumulate in the different parts of the body especially in the bone marrow and over the surface of bones. These cells discharge only single type of antibody known as paraprotein (which do not exhibit any useful function). Myeloma is diagnosed and monitored by measuring the levels of paraproteins.

Signs and symptoms include:

  • Bone pain
  • Anemia
  • Kidney failure
  • Infection
  • Neurologica symptoms
