Brief Answer: Myeloma can not be diagnosed with above reports Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Welcome to XXXXXXX Myeloma can not be diagnosed with the above reports, especially smoldering myeloma which is most difficult to identify I suggest you to go for protein electrophoresis and MRI of skull and spine, along with serum creatinine, bone marrow aspiration and b2 microglobulin. we can only conclude based on those reports. Hope I am clear. you may post the reports if they are already done. Regards
