In brief: Yes

Monoclonal antibodies are important as medications and diagnostic tools, but if you are making a very large amount of one antibody, it's concerning for plasma cell myeloma.
A small spike without other signs of trouble is "monoclonal gammopathy of uncertain significance" and is a small risk for trouble in years or decades. Find out what's up & i wish you luck.
