Is eloctrophoresis which shows a discrete band consistent with plasma cell dyscrasia anything to worry ?
i recently had a blood test because i was having a lot of pain which comes and goes i have a crush fracture of t9 blood tests are generally ok, except for the eloctrophoresis which shows a discrete band consistent with plasma cell dyscrasia such as myeloma or mgus
your electrophoresis reports says that it is consistent with plasma cell dyscariasis. however not specified that it is myeloma or mgus. you need further investigation to confirm that what the disease you have. it depends on your monoclonal Ig levels and your symptoms. go for Monoclonal Ig levels, bone marrow study, x-ray skull also needed. also scan you have any lytic lesion aor not. what is creatinine level and albumin level is also important. but one thing is sure you need further investigation for plasma cell dyscariasis. go for that and take treatment accordingly.
