Age is the largest risk factor for multiple myeloma. Half of the people found to have this cancer are older than 71 years of age. Only 1 percent of cases are in people younger than 40.
Men are more likely to get this cancer than women.
Multiple myeloma is the second most common blood cancer in the United States, and about 20,000 new cases are diagnosed in this country every year.
Early symptoms may include bone pain, often in the back or ribs, broken bones, weakness or fatigue, weight loss, or repeated infections.
