My husband has a swollen spleen but the dr. does not know why. We have done several test. They all come back fine. He is having lots of pressure on his left side right under his rib cage.

His Dr. told to to check back in 3 months and we would do another ultasound.

Can anyone please help me understanding what causes a swollen spleen?

  • I would call an gastroenterologist and ask for an appt. If you need a referral, ask your doctor for one just saying you are too concerned to wait for 3 months even with the test ok.
