Multiple Myeloma

Multiple Myeloma Summary:

Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the B-lymphocytes. Although similar in affected tissue as leukemia or lymphoma, multiple myeloma is neither leukemia or lymphoma.

This form of cancer proliferates in the bone marrow, causing tumors to form. The tumors formed cause the bone to reabsorb bone marrow, wreaking havoc on the bones structure and function.

Myelomas tend to be found all over the body anywhere in the skeleton. They tend to spread, and have a poor prognosis.

As the tumors grow in the bone, the damage causes significant pain and the bones will become weak. As bone is broken down, calcium is released into the blood stream which will damage the kidneys as they try to filter it out of the blood stream. Additionally, the B-cells produced by affected tissue will cause a reduction in the immune function.


Aetiology:

Multiple myeloma is a dysfunction in B-cell production in the bone marrow. It causes tumors to grow in the bone tissue, which erode the bone and can cause significant amounts of pain in the process. 

As the tissue becomes weakened, more impotent B-cell production will ocurr, leading to a reduction in immune function.
