Seek real reason. Search for a different cause of your anemia. There are hundreds of possible causes. Only when everything else is ruled out do you need to think seriously about myeloma, as long as the spike stays small. I'm sorry your MGUS was detected. Finding it early does nobody any good and causes worry.
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 more...
