Myeloma, a cancer that develops from plasma cells in the bone marrow, is diagnosed in approximately 5,500 people in the UK each year. In 2014 it was the reason given for nearly 3,000 deaths. Cancer Research UK statistics show that about one third of patients with myeloma survive for ten years or more.
