Can asbestos cause multiple myeloma?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous mineral known for its heat-resistant properties. Prolonged exposure to asbestos has been linked predominantly to lung diseases such as asbestosis, mesothelioma and lung cancer. Some research suggests a potential association between asbestos exposure and multiple myeloma, but the evidence is inconclusive. The relationship is still being studied, and while some studies indicate a slightly increased risk, others do not. It’s important to consult with health professionals and specialists when concerned about asbestos exposure and potential health implications.
