Introduction: Multiple Myeloma
Multiple Myeloma: Cancer causing tumors in bone marrow
Multiple Myeloma: Myeloma cells tend to collect in the bone marrow and in the hard, outer part of bones. Sometimes they collect in only one bone and form a single mass, or tumor, called a plasmacytoma. In most cases, however, the myeloma cells collect in many bones, often forming many tumors and causing other problems. When this happens, the disease is called multiple myeloma.1
