Re: Myeloma question
Myeloma is a bone marow problem where plasma cells that normally produce antibodies start making excess light chain proteins, of which there are 2 types, kappa and lamda. If one is produced in excess, it throws off the ratio of the two. So it appears you are producing too much lamda protein, and the significance of that will need to be determined. This is sometimes called monoclonal gammopathy, and mild elevations can exist for years in some people without causing disease, and requires monitoring but nothing further. Your Dr may refer you to a specialist for further testing or monitoring (a hematologist). I would wait until you have a chance to talk about this more with your Dr. and review results of other tests you may have had to shed some light on it.
