The size of the spleen is more important!

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Thanks for writing to us!

Well, it is very common to get an enlarged spleen in any clinic but the degree of enlargement and related clinical symptoms matter and the cause could be physiological, benign, infective/inflammatory to neoplastic or cancerous, though rarely!

Please mention the size of your spleen and the problems that you face along with blood reports if any, for a better opinion...

Feedback most welcome!
