Can you see multiple myeloma on an X-ray?

Multiple myeloma can cause changes in bones that might be visible on an X-ray, such as “punched-out” lesions or generalized osteoporosis. However, while X-rays can provide valuable information about bone health and detect some of these changes, they are not definitive for diagnosing multiple myeloma. More specific tests, like serum protein electrophoresis, urine tests and bone marrow biopsies, are crucial for a conclusive diagnosis.
