Hi, I would like to ask anyone who has active MM. I recently reviewed my blood test (serum electrophoresis) and BMB results and Im a bit confused, I was diagnosed with solitary extramedullary plasmacytoma back in 2007 and last november 2009 I had a biopsy (sample was from a swollen lymph node) and the doctors say it's a recurrence and had a BMB afer the biopsy results came, my hematologist said that my hip bone was like a sponge and my bone marrow were like jelly beans, so they were suspecting that I have MM. but the results of my BMB and serum electrophoresis came back with this:
BMB: Scattered plasma cell comprising less than 5% of marrow population,
Had a bone scan and doctors found no lytic lesions
then other blood tests came back with normal values (creatinin, hemoglobin, WBC, calcium)
does this mean I have active MM???
