Is having MGUS a bad sign if you have already been treated for multiple myeloma? Can you live normally with it? Is it treatable? How is it treated?
Hello @Carlton.L, thank you for opening this discussion. I know getting a new diagnosis can be really stressful to handle. Let me tag some other members who can possibly share with you.
For those of you who may not be aware, MGUS (monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance) is a non-cancerous condition where the body makes an abnormal protein called a paraprotein.
People with MGUS have a higher likelihood of developing both multiple myeloma and , with about 1% of cases of MGUS progressing into MM each year.
What about you? Were any of you diagnosed with MGUS before multiple myeloma? How were you diagnosed? Did you have any symptoms? Were there any treatments for it? How long until it progressed to active multiple myeloma?
