Symptoms of myeloma

  • persistent severe bone pain
  • anaemia
  • recurrent infections
  • renal impairment (kidney problems)
  • bleeding
  • confusion
  • hypercalcaemia (raised blood calcium levels)
  • abnormal immunoglobulin (antibody) levels.

Monocloncal gammopathy of uncertain significance (MGUS)

This is a condition where a low level paraprotein is found in the blood, with no other features to suggest myeloma, although this may later develop in some patients. All patients with MGUS are monitored in our service but most only require a quick consultation and check on paraprotein levels.
