Abnormal bone scan and high IGm level

Hi, I am a 30 yrs old man. I got exposed to toxic chemical fumes (possible carcinogens) for 30min ~ 4 months ago. I developed (a) frontal (forehead and temple area) headache in every morning and (b) pain on the right rib side in the lower half of the rib. Rib pain is mild and no improvement in 4 months, infact it appears to be spreading to right back as well. (c) Recently I started having numbness feeling in my hand fingers. (d) Have had few drops of blood in the dry nasal mucus from right nostril few times, or trace of blood when I blow my nose sometimes.

Abnormal Blood work: High Igm (497 (Lab max. 230)), Elevated Gamma Globulin (1.7 (Lab max. 1.6) measured on Feb1, and 1.47 (Lab max. 1.33) measured on Feb11). Increased polyclonal immunoglobulins.
Recently had a nuclear med bonescan and it showed that abnormality in the 7th rib near posterior axillary line;

Normal Blood work: CBC, CMP, ESR, CRP, CK, Vit D, Vat B12,Diabetese, Hep. A/B/C, Complement 3 &4, Rhematoid factor, ANA, LACTATE DEHYDROGENASE, DNA AUTOABS DOUBLE STRANDED, SCLERODERMA ANTIBODY SCL 70, ENA ANTIBODIES (SM AND SM/RNP). All came normal

Eco, Lungs CT angio, Head CT and Head MRI, Chest Xray. They all came normal.

I wonder if I have some time of cancer, like bone or anywhere else in my body. Any suggestion for any test, or what could be wrong w/ me would be heartly appreciated? I was very healthy since last 8 years and never had any health issues until this chemical inhalation. Thanks very much. Regards.
