Thanks for your query.
I am a medical specialist with an additional degree in cardiology.

Yes, enlarged spleen due to any cause including in your case pain. In fact one of the symptom whereby doctor suspects splenic enlargement is patient telling him of:
Feeling discomfort, fullness, or pain on the upper left side of the abdomen; this pain may spread to his/her left shoulder.

If you have any followup query, I shall be most happy to answer.
With Best Wishes
