A 46-year-old male asked:

Serum protein electrophoresis showed elevated beta-2 globulin, 5.3 g/l (reference range 2.0-5.0 g/l). what further testing could be done to rule out multiple myeloma, aside from immunofixation and quantitative immunoglobin?

Bone marrow : A bone marrow examination in addition to testing serum is an essential part of the diagnosis of multiple myeloma. It is imperative that you consult a hematologist/Oncologist. Wish you good health!
