could you please advise regading the treamment , is surgery is the only option avali for treamant?
its a series prob or it can be trated by medician as well?
Has she investigated for cause of enlarged
Treatment depends upon the cause.
Doc suggested few test still needs to be done for its cause
Spleen is enlarged in many conditions like infections, malignancy, hematological conditions, etc.
I think it is worth to wait till the cause is excluded.
ok ..ENLARGED SPLEEN can be a serious prob ?
It could be. Again, let me tell you it depends on the cause. Enlarged spleen is sign and not the disease itself.
But, it presents due to some malignancy or hematological cause like thrombocytopenic purpura, it needs careful evaluation and careful treatment.
I would suggest you to follow your doctor's advise regarding the same, investigations can be advised after clinical examination. I lack that opportunity to examine the patient.
thanks for the advise.
Thanks for consulting me.
Wish you and your wife a good health.
Bye for now.
