How do you say thanks doter

Hello Grandson, thank you for asking.


Splenomegaly is an enlarged spleen organ. The spleen is the location of the activation and degradation of white blood cells involved in immune activity. The spleen can also function as a location for platelet reserves and blood cell degradation. The spleen, like other organs, can also experience various problems. Problems can include infection, tumor mass, or injury.


Not all splenomegaly gives symptoms, so sometimes patients are not aware of an enlarged spleen. Symptoms can also be felt differently depending on the cause of splenomegaly. Common symptoms include enlarged abdomen, upper left abdominal pain, feeling full or nausea, easy infection, pale, and so on. We certainly cannot determine whether splenomegaly is caused by infection, tumors, or other diseases. The diagnosis must be made based on the history of the disease, physical examination findings, and the results of investigations such as CT-scan or MRI. If the doctor suspects a tumor, then the doctor may be able to take a biopsy to determine the nature of the tumor and the type of tumor cells. Therapy and actions are adjusted based on cause. If the cause is an infection, then of course it will be treated according to the causative microorganism. If it turns out there is a benign tumor, then it is possible to remove the tumor. If the tumor is malignant, besides removal of the spleen as a whole, chemotherapy or radiotherapy is needed.


Please discuss with your doctor a hematology consultant about it. The medicine that is given at this time is only to relieve symptoms, because the exact cause has not been found.


Thus a brief explanation from me. Hopefully can help. Regards.
