A 30-year-old male asked:
i am wondering with normal spep, bone marrow biopsy, pet scan all normal, high b2m is there chances for myeloma or waldenstrm's macroglobulinemia?

Yes: There is no test that will completely exclude nay diagnosis. In additon, b2m is a marker for all lymphoid disease (CLL, NHL, Hodgkin etc..) In any event, with the above negatvie studies the chances of you having lymphoma/myeloma missed is excedingly small
