I just got my results to my P.E.T Scan and it says this…Mild bone marrow hypermetabolism (SUV max 4-5), most notably in the
lumbar spine, SUV max 5.1 at L4.
No focal lesions. What in the world does this mean? I was Diagnosed last April with MGUS

Hello @nmcastocker and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect, an online community of members like yourself. Because we are not healthcare professionals, reading results isn't something that we can do. Can you share when you had your P.E.T. scan and the background information on why you went in for the scan so that we can connect you with members who share similar experiences and may be able to provide support?

I was diagnosed with MGUS April of 2020, but my IGM continues to rise and I've been having problems with pain in hip, legs , feet and trouble breathing. After being cleared from pulmonologist and being told there is nothing wrong with my feet or legs, I was sent for a P.E.T Scan and today had another bone marrow biopsy.
