Spleen Enlargement
I have also been diagnosed with a mild spleen enlargement and from reading causes on the net, I am getting worried also. Mine started with a very mild mild sensation just below my left rib cage. After a few months, I decided to seek medical attention. The first test was blood and CT scan. Blood work was normal, but the CT scan showed an enlarged spleen with a 17cm length. He followed up a few months later with an ultrasound and discovered the spleen was now 13 cm's and didn't seem too concerned. The Gastrointestinal doctor referred me to a hematologist/oncologist just to follow thru with a complete diagnoses. The ongologist did more blood work which is still normal and ordered another ultrasound 2 months later. He palpated my spleen and didn't feel anything. He checked my lymphnodes and didn't seem swollen.  After the 2 month ultrasound, I just received word that the volume had increased from 460 cm^3 to 615 cm^3 but the length has not increased. They described it as mild enlargement again.  A difference of 155 does not seem alot outside the body, but seems huge to me being on the inside of the body. Do I need to be worried, or can a spleen flucuate and still be normal? Any educational advise would be helpful.
