Multiple myeloma is a type of cancer in which malignant cells in the bone marrow and lymph system cause bone disease. These cells are called plasma cells. These malignant cells affect the function of the bone marrow. Multiple myeloma typically occurs later in life, affecting both men and women who are age 60 or older.
