Myeloma or polyclonal Gammopathy?

My cousin’s father was growing weak and we were concerned about his health. he has his liver damaged due to alcoholism, but is in strict restrain for last 2 months. One of my friend advised Serum Protein Electrophoresis and the report read “Partial M Spike seen”. Upon repeating the same test at another hospital, the report read " M band not seen, report suggestive of polyclonal gammopathy".

Can anyone help me out to conclude if the M spike is present or not looking into the Protein Electrophoresis report? Image of the graph is attached herewith.

We are all worried about the condition. please help us out.

Hi @deepusandy a great big welcome to our forum and I am sorry I cannot help with your questions, we are not medically trained on here, but I am very sorry to hear about your cousin’s father. His medical situation sounds rather complex.
What I can empathise with are your, and your family’s feelings of worry, that not knowing is horrible and the waiting for tests and their results seems never ending…
