What is Myeloma?

Description of the disease

Myeloma, or multiple myeloma, is a malignant disease of the bone marrow, in which plasma cells proliferate uncontrollably and displace healthy bone marrow cells.


Myeloma is divided into many subtypes depending on various factors, such as the nature of the cells and the behavior of the disease.


Main symptoms of myeloma may include bone pain, weakness, increased susceptibility to infections, elevated levels of protein in the blood, and kidney dysfunction.


The exact causes of myeloma are unknown, but genetic factors and exposure to certain harmful substances may play a role in the development of the disease.


Diagnosis of myeloma includes various types of tests, such as blood tests, bone marrow biopsy, and imaging procedures such as X-rays and scans.


Treatment of myeloma may include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, bone marrow transplantation, and the use of various medications.


Since the exact causes of myeloma are unknown, there are only a few speculated ways to prevent it, such as avoiding certain harmful substances and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.


For the diagnosis and treatment of myeloma, it is necessary to consult a hematologist or oncologist specializing in blood diseases and tumor therapy.
