Myeloma is a type of blood cancer that affects your plasma cells and bone marrow. Plasma cells are white blood cells that develop in the bone marrow and produce antibodies, an important part of your immune system. When you have myeloma, abnormal plasma cells build up, crowd out normal cells and interfere with normal antibody function.
Accounting for more than 90 percent of myeloma cases, the most common type of myeloma is multiple myeloma. Multiple myeloma is myeloma that’s present in several areas of the body.
