This cancer originates in white blood cells called plasma cells. These cells make antibodies that fight off germs and infections. When the cancer cells produce excessively, they will gather in the bone marrow and produce abnormal antibodies that will damage the kidneys over time or cause the blood to get thick.
This cancer does not usually show signs or symptoms until it’s very advanced. If there are myeloma tumors present, these can cause the bones to weaken and cause pain. Most patients are diagnosed with multiple myeloma in their mid-60s.
For more information about multiple myeloma, contact a helpful member of the Causenta team.
