Myeloma presently accounts for almost 10% of all hematologic malignancies and 1% of cancer deaths in Western countries. Although myeloma is a rare malignancy, there is relatively high mortality, with a five-year survival of 28%. This chapter reviews the epidemiology of myeloma. Topics covered include classification, incidence and mortality, host factors, and environmental factors.
