Hi everyone, my brother was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma at the age of 61. Is it possible that a weakened immune system can trigger this disease?

      Another way to look at this is that Multiple Myeloma, as well as some treatments, challenge immunity.

      Hi there. I'm sorry to hear about your brother's diagnosis. I'm not a doctor but i dont think a weakened immune system is a direct cause of Multiple Myeloma

      As someone with MM, I've read a lot and talked to various experts. They often say there's no single cause for MM but a combination of genetic and environmental factors. A weakened immune system might not directly cause MM, but it can certainly play a role in how the disease manifests and progresses.
