Brief Answer:
Marginal increase; get serum electrophoresis

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem. 4.2 is just a marginal increase but just to be sure that it is not due to multiple myeloma, you should get a serum electrophoresis done. You should consult your doctor and schedule this test. If this test is normal, then the marginal rise in globulin values has no significance.

Hoping for the best. Please feel free to clarify any other query.
