What is Multiple Myeloma?

Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the blood and is caused by a change to the DNA of a single stem cell in the bone marrow. The bone marrow creates red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets and the white blood cells are responsible for creating antibodies that fight disease and infection. In myeloma, the B cells (or types of white blood cells) become cancerous and one type will start to overgrow, crowding out the normal antibodies.
