Is 13cm spleen actually enlarged? Dr said its upper end of NML (12-14cm).. If so why CT report say mildly enlarged? CBC CMP LDH all nml. No symptoms

In brief: Mild Splenomegaly

Top normal linear measurement is 9.
8 cm: http://www.ajronline.org/doi/abs/10.2214/ajr.184.5.01841510 3 dimensional measurement is more accurate, but 13 cm is a little large. Clinical importance is unclear and further medical work up seems advised, but may be unrewarding as this is non specific. If this were me, I'd follow it with serial U/S (maybe repeat in 2-3 mos.) so you don't worry.
