In brief: Multiple myeloma(MM)
is a cancer of plasma cells, which normally make antibody proteins in your body.
MM is not caused by an infection, so it is not contagious in the usual sense. Still, a person with a history of myeloma should never donate blood, because their tumor cells could possibly grow in someone else if the recipient did not have a healthy immune system or was an identical twin.
