multiple myeloma

a type of cancer that starts in the plasma cells. Normal plasma cells are mainly found in the bone marrow and are an important part of the body’s immune system. When plasma cells grow out of control, they can form tumors, usually in the bone marrow. If only one tumor forms, it is called solitary (or isolated) plasmacytoma. See also bone marrow, immune system.
