Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the plasma cells. In multiple myeloma, abnormal plasma cells (myeloma cells) build up in the bone marrow, forming tumors in multiple bones of the body. These tumors may prevent the bone marrow from making enough healthy blood cells.

Early myeloma includes smoldering myeloma and stage I disease. Patients with early myeloma can do well for years without treatment. Starting treatment early does not seem to help them live longer. These patients are often watched closely without starting chemo or other treatments for myeloma. They may be started on a bisphosphonate if they have bone disease.
