My blood test results showed a problem with the storage of iron in my body.
The initial blood tests results showed anemia.
Multiple Myeloma can be a slow movin cancer.
I have questions a to whether I should have a bone scan or blood tests completed to rule out the probability of Multiple Myeloma.
I have some knowledge of this conditon because my mother died of this type of cancer.
I realize there is no evidence of heriditary factors.

Additionaly, why would my primary care doctor be so addament about the unlikelyhood of having this condition?
