Does multiple myeloma cause coughing?

Multiple myeloma doesn’t typically cause coughing directly. However, some related conditions or treatments can lead to respiratory symptoms. For example, infections are common in myeloma patients due to immunosuppression, leading to respiratory symptoms. Additionally, some patients might develop pleural effusions (fluid around the lungs) or pulmonary embolism (from blood clots), which can cause coughing. It’s essential to distinguish the cause of coughing for appropriate treatment.
