Electrophoresis and: Free serum light chain tests. Multiple myeloma is generally diagnosed by electrophoresis of serum, urine and free serum light chain test. X-rays of the bone may reveal lytic lesions that are a strong indicator of the disease. Confirmation of the diagnosis requires examination of bone marrow by a pathologist.
