Causes

The exact cause of multiple myeloma is still not fully understood. However, researchers believe that certain genetic mutations may play a role in the development of the disease. In addition, environmental factors such as exposure to radiation, certain chemicals, and other toxins may also increase the risk of developing multiple myeloma. Some studies have also suggested a potential link between multiple myeloma and certain viral infections, although more research is needed to fully understand this relationship.

Another potential factor that may contribute to the development of multiple myeloma is a history of certain autoimmune diseases. Some studies have suggested a possible link between autoimmune conditions and an increased risk of developing this type of cancer. However, more research is needed to confirm this association and to understand the underlying mechanisms.
