" USG guided FNA smears from left chest wall mass are of low cellularity and show scattered plasmacells, few lymphoid cells and occasional megakaryocytes. Few of these plasma cells are binucleated. Features are suggestive of Plasmacytoma.

Brief Answer:
It is a malignant tumor and needs to be treated

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through the details. Plasmacytoma is cancerous and needs to be treated with radiotherapy. However, sometimes surgery is also needed.

The stage of a cancer depends on its spread. Initially it spreads to the surrounding structures (local spread), then to lymph nodes, and then to other organs through blood or other means. So, the information here is not adequate to give you the stage. However, radiotherapy is able to restrict local spread in more than 80% cases of plasmacytoma.

I would suggest you to visit a hematologist or oncologist without delay so that the treatment can be administered suitably.
