WHAT IS MULTIPLE MYLENOMA? :-(

Loading...

Multiple mylenoma is a cancer of the plasma cells. These cells are a type of white blood cells found in the bone marrow. It is called multiple because the abnormal cells may appear in multiple bone marrow sites in your body.
The exact cause is not known but exposure to radiation for example could contribute to development of this cancer. Risk factors are specified although it is found that women are more prone to it then man, obesity may contribute to it, black people are more likely to get it, the majority of people who develop multiple myeloma are older than 50, etc
Cancer may rise the levels of plasma cells in the bone marrow, making it 10% comparing to healthy 5% that are usually present in the bone marrow. This may lead to erosion of the bones, problems with immune system, which often lead to anemia and infection. Multiple myeloma may also cause problems with your kidneys.
If no symptoms are present, you may not need treatment. In that case doctors decide to monitor the condition and regularly check for increasing levels of M protein in your blood or urine, which indicates that the disease is progressing.
The reason there is not treatment in this stage of the cancer is because there is no cure for the disease but it can be maintained, controlled and stabilized and the progression of the disease may be slowed.
A doctor usually decides upon many types of treatments, which would be best for the patient.
Is there anybody in your family that was found to have cancer or have you been diagnosed with the disease. The only thing a person can and should do is have a positive attitude, accept things as they are and fight for its health.

This disease can be maintained and life can be prolonged.
