Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
From the results of your ultrasound, the abnormality found is splenomegaly or enlarged spleen organs (other organs are not abnormal). The spleen is a part of the lymphatic organ located in the upper left abdomen, more back than the stomach. Generally people will not be able to feel this organ because it is in the ribs, but if this organ enlarges in size, the spleen will be touched. Enlargement of spleen organs can occur due to:
Viral infections (such as mononucleosis), bacterial infections, or parasites (such as malaria)
Disorders of the liver (such as liver cirrhosis)
Blood cancers (such as leukemia) and lymphomas
Metabolic diseases such as Gaucher's disease and Niemann-Pick
Emphasis on blood vessels that travel to the spleen or liver (for example due to tumors in other organs in the abdominal cavity)
To find out exactly the cause of enlargement of your spleen, most likely you will need further examination. We recommend that you bring the results of the ultrasound back to your doctor who recommends an examination to be further analyzed and matched with the symptoms you feel and the results of your physical examination.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
