I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

What do lumps in the nostril, right arm and knee indicate?

For multiple myeloma, are the size, growth rate, or number of tumors factored into the staging process. My partner has MM and three tumors (nasal cavity, upper right arm, and knee), so I was wondering if that is a factor or if it s just blood tests that are considered.

Multiple Myeloma means increased plasma cells in the bone marrow. If they are present else it is called plasmacytoma.

You have to undergo these below tests:
-Complete blood picture
-Total serum proteins
-Serum electrophoresis and
-Finally bone marrow examination

Please consult hematologist or medical oncologist for more information and management.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have a small bump / lump on the inside of my right nostril. It feels like it had a scab on the head of the bump, but I can t remove it no matter how hard I try. Maybe it s just a very rough head. I had some look at it, since I can t, and she reported seeing the same thing. There is no pain unless I m picking at it (yes, I know I shouldn t be!!). I can t remember when I first noticed it, but my best guess would be about 4-5 months ago. Thank you

I ve had this weird pink mass/lump inside my right nostril for years.I ve always seen it and disregarded it, but lately I ve been having a stuffy nose. There is no pain with it or any aching, and it s pretty far back there I can t get a good visual of it. However, sometimes my nostril isn t stuffed up and the lump remains what is this? a sinus thing? a gland?
