Hello everyone, I am hoping someone can help me with my problem. Two years ago I had a CT scan that revealed that I had an enlarged spleen. I am 6'6" and 300 pounds with no other symptoms, my doctors told me it was probably just because I am large anyway. I recently saw a new doctor and she recommended that I get an ultrasound. It too showed that I have an enlarged spleen (19 cm) and she sent me to a hematologist. He gave me a physical exam (no sign of enlarged lymph nodes), ran some blood tests (all showed nothing of interest), and felt my spleen (which was enlarged). Recently, I have been having dull pain from the spleen area that I would consider a 5-6 on a ten scale. Other than being overweight, I am in pretty good physical condition.
Any ideas or other areas I can explore. I am fearful the pain will get worse or the spleen might possibly rupture?!?!?!
