Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Look, HbE trait is not a major disease condition. Do not worry regarding that. But, in HbE trait splenomegally is rare.

So, you should consult with your treating doctor for a thorough clinical check up. Other causes of splenomegally should be excluded first.

Hope this will be helpful.
