What is meant by havng an Abnormal Protein Band 1 (Protein-M) present?

Asked by smartguyjax (Male; 43; Hypertension, Herpes 2; Relevant drugs:Taking Micardis 40 mg / day for hypertension, Valtrex 500mg, Also taking 10mg of Buspirone and .25 mg of Xanax (Alprozolem) daily for anxiety/panic attacks every since I was exposed and recieved 1st Degree Chemical burns on my hands from to a cleaning Solution (Bar Keepers Friend) in Aug 2008 that contained Oxalic Acid. ) on Tue 20, Apr 2010 09:56pm

During recent neurological testing for the Neurological problems the M-Protein was detected with a High .3 g/dL level. The Vitamin B12 level was 376. The Serum Immunofixation results should a "Faint IGG (LAMBDA) Monoclonal Immunogobulin being detected. I have my first Oncology Appointment set for Friday 4/23/2010 to supposedly do a consult and find out next steps. Is a .3 G/DL level a concern, Is the faint LAMBDA level good or bad? Nothing on the report about the Kappa Level.
