What Is Waldenström's Macroglobulinemia?

Combating a progressive disease begins with being armed with essential information.

Waldenstrom macroglobulinemia (WM) is a rare cancer characterized by an overproduction of abnormal white blood cells. WM cancer cells are similar to those in multiple myeloma and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. In Waldenström’s, the body creates an abundance of a protein called macroglobulin. When this protein accumulates, the blood thickens and disables itself from moving through the blood vessels with ease. As a result, several complications arise due to impaired circulation.

Waldenström's Macroglobulinemia Symptoms in Men and Women

In some cases, people can have Waldenström's macroglobulinemia for years without showing any symptoms. When signs appear, most are caused by low blood counts or thickened blood. Symptoms vary and may include:

  • Quick bruising
  • Excessive bleeding, nosebleeds, bleeding gums
  • Weakness and fatigue
  • Changes in vision
  • Headaches
  • Fevers
  • Heavy night sweats
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Swollen abdomen
  • Frequent infections due to reduced immune function
  • “Pins and needles” or a feeling or numbness in hands and feet
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Stroke-like symptoms, such as confusion, dizziness, and loss of coordination
  • Shortness of breath

Speak with your doctor if you have persistent signs of Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia.

Waldenström's Macroglobulinemia Causes

Waldenstrom’s has no proven causes. However, certain factors may increase a man or woman’s risk of developing it. They include:

  • Age. People over 50 develop Waldenström’s macroglobulinemia more often.
  • Race. Waldenstrom’s is more common in white people than other races.
  • Family history of Waldenstrom’s or other lymphomas.

Not everyone with risk factors gets Waldenström’s. However, if you have risk factors, it is a good idea to discuss them with your doctor.

Tests for Waldenström's Macroglobulinemia

Doctors diagnose Waldenstrom's macroglobulinemia based on specific clinical criteria (signs and symptoms). Further, tests that help establish a reliable clinical diagnosis include:

  • Lymph node biopsy
  • Computed axial tomography (CT) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
  • X-rays
  • Blood and urine tests
  • Bone marrow aspiration and biopsy

It is crucial for a pathologist experienced in Waldenstrom's to read your test results since it can be challenging to diagnose. An early and accurate diagnosis helps you have the highest chance for successful treatment as well as improve your Waldenstrom's prognosis.
