Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Shoulder pain might be a referred pain from the spleen.
The management of the cyst / prognosis depends on the cause of the cyst needs further tests

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum. Splenic systs are of epithelial, or traumatic, epithelial may be congenital or due to worms infestation. recently doctors are considering for considering for conservation of the spleen in the treatment of the cysts over the spleen.
The possible treatment in your case is laproscopic decompression of the spleen, which may not be possible in all hospitals. you can ask your doctor for conservative treatment as for as possible. it is not necessory that it may recur.
Avoid taking spices, chillies, junk foods, and oily foods to avoid gastric pain and feeling of mimicing splenic pain.
Wishing for a quick , safe and complete recovery and thanks for calling.
