Monoclonal Band In Gamma
"spep - all levels normal but at the bottom, test says 'faint band in gamma region suspicious for monoclonal immunoglobulin'. My pcp wasn't worried, didn't want to test further. Should i be concerned?
At your age, no!: A monoclonal gammopathy is rare at your age. Number two, they takes decades usually to express themselves. Number three, not all become multiple myeloma, and number four, multiple myeloma is no quite treatable. I have many patients followed for years in late seventies, who still rquire no treatment. Simply repeat the test yearly. I would quantify the specific gammaglobulins as well, yearly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Blood tests shows high gamma globulin & high igg. Ifx shows no monoclonal protein & free light chains are within normal range. What does this mean?
It might be a benign: Many benign processed can cause hypergammaglobulinemia, which are benign elevations without a para -protein or m-spike on serum protein electrophoresis(spe)> it all depends on how high is the gammaglobulin level and making sure the liver functions are ok and there is no chronic inflammation(like rheumatoid arthritis, sarcoidosis etc) going on inside the body. ...Read more
I've had an electrophoresis test done, serum & urine. Results show a spike in the beta and gamma regions. No monoclonal protein. What does this mean? I have proteinuria and fsgs stage 3. I am 50
What is FSGS?: Please do not use abbreviations....They mean different things to different people. Ask your doctor to advise you about any relationship of your electrophoresis report to your underlying problem. I do not think this report is of any consequence or concern. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Serum -tiny IgM kappa monoclonal protein b2 region, urine - tiny IgM k paraproteinemia in gamma region. Was a mistake made or is lab normal?
Monoclonal: •multiple myeloma (g>a>m>e, d) •primary macroglobulinemia (waldenstrøm’s, igm) •monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (mgus) (converts at 2% per year to myeloma) •miscellaneous conditions •(converts at 2% per year to myeloma) these all have to be thought of by the hematologist. ...Read more
I have inconsistent tests that lean toward multiple myeloma or MGUS. First xray lytic lesion; globulin series serum & urine monoclonal positive to gamma; 24 hr electopherurine neg; beginning anemia; BUN off; other small abnormals. Bone survey neg.
Need second opinion: The criteria for myeloma vs Mgus changed recently but both changes include exact percentages and size of lytic bone lesions. Your data as you summarized are not adequate and since mgus vs multiple myeloma are like dawn and day, you need to be seen and your precise numbers verified. That said, please see hemeonc in centers experienced in myeloma dx,management,and treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Results on immunofixation are: IgM kappa monoclonal protein in beta-2 band. What does this mean? What is my next step? I need to be proactive.
Multiple myeloma at age 22? Possibility of IgG kappa monoclonal band is observed in my blood work. I have the symptoms of mm. Is this possible at 22?
