Kelvin,

A reading of 13.1 would indicate a value well outside of the "normal range" and worthy of additional testing.  Of course the final determinant in the diagnosis path would be a biopsy to determine the exact nature of the cells and any if any biomarkers are present to aid in applying the most effective treatments.  In my case my measurement from a PET Scan was 2.54SUV and that was considered near normal, but inconclusive.  At the end of the day I had NSCLC Squamos that was treated with surgery.  So, even a low reading does not indicate accurately cancer or not cancer.  All tests need to be taken together.

Back at my diagnosis in October 2019, SUV in my LLL tumor was originally 9.9, and the lymph nodes were 8.2.

Interestingly, after I had a bulk Teflon injection into my paralyzed left vocal cord, the SUV increased from 4.8 to 6.2.

I still have paramediastinal airspace opacity, probably from radiation. SUV is stable at 2.5.

Kelvin,

Just to restate; your mom's numbers require further diagnosis.  They would seem to indicate potential cancer.  The biopsy will be the final determinant and I pray for the best outcome possible.
