Hello,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.
Presence of protein does not mean multiple myeloma.

It can come from other causes too.

An infection can cause protein to pass in urine

Nephropathy, glomerulonephritis of kidney due to different conditions can cause it.

Diabetic nephropathy is a common cause.

You need to discuss with doctor about the level & type.

Doctor can then decide whether further tests would be necessary.

I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.
Regards.
