Multiple Myeloma is a cancerous bone disease which affects certain white blood cells called plasma cells for which there is no known cure. Symptoms include holes in the bone and can lead to severe pain, fractures and weakness. Often these symptoms resemble other bone diseases. Test such as x-ray, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and bone marrow biopsy can be used to diagnose multiple myeloma. Advanced multiple myeloma treatment options are available and may include medications, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and blood and marrow transplantation.
