In brief: Usually not
The liver is not usually affected by myeloma however clusters of myeloma cells can rarely deposit in the liver. These are called plasmacytomas.

In brief: It is usually not
Usually myeloma doesn't attack the liver but many of the drugs we use to treat it do have effects on the liver. Also, a related type of cancer called amyloidosis can invade the liver and other organs and interfere with their function.
