Multiple myeloma is a cancer arising from abnormal growth of plasma cells. Plasma Cells are a normal component of the bone marrow which is produced from B lymphocytes. They are responsible for producing IMMUNOGLOBULINS, which are proteins produced to fight infections. In multiple myeloma, collections of abnormal plasma cells accumulate in the bone marrow, where they interfere with the production of normal blood cells
