Affected cells interfere with the production of normal blood cells by accumulating in the bone marrow. The symptoms of this form of cancer are pain in the bones, anemia, infections, neurological symptoms and, usually, kidney failure as a result of the production of paraprotein. The disease is considered to be incurable but treatable. Treatment includes steroids and chemotherapy.
