Plasma Cells: Plasma cells are a normal component of bone marrow. A higher percentage than normal can indicate certain conditions such as multiple myeloma or MGUS. It is important to understand that any test needs to be interpreted in the context of other clinical findings. Discuss these results with your physician to figure out the diagnosis.
