Signs and Symptoms of Multiple Myeloma

0

Multiple myeloma, also called Kahler’s disease, is a type of cancer that begins in plasma cells – white blood cells that produce antibodies.

Plasma cells usually work in the body’s immune defense system and help produce antibodies. In cases of multiple myeloma, however, too many plasma cells build up in the bone marrow.
