Hi Wobbly,

It is uncommon to find granulomas in the bone marrow.  When we do see them, there can be many different potential causes including: various types of infection, autoimmune diseases, medications, or malignancies.

In the majority of patients, MGUS (monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance) is a benign condition, but in some it can progress to a cancer called multiple myeloma. There is no treatment for it, but it should be monitored. MGUS can also be present in patients who have other autoimmune or chronic inflammatory conditions.  

It would be best to discuss with your physician.

Good luck.
