View Full Version : Enlarged Spleen

01-16-2009, 10:45 AM
Three years ago, I was undergoing tests for my stomach when an abdominal ultrasound showed that I had an enlarged spleen. The doctor wasn't the least bit concerned about it (didn't even bring it up in any of my appts.), so I wasn't either.

For the past 9 months, I have been having intermittent stabbing pain under the left breast that takes my breath away and I'm wondering if this could be related to the enlarged spleen. Any thoughts on this?

yes it is and i would request a second opinion and blood tests. i had the same pain and it was confirmed it was enlarged. not sure why but it was. all the tests came back negative. it went back to normal on its own and no longer have any pain. mono is the #1 cause of spleen enlargement so you may want to test for that first especially if you are tired and not eating well. keep us posted
