I am a 42 year old female I had a


Q: I am a 42 year old female. I had a c section 4 months ago. I have GERD and gastritis.

I had a CT scan because I was having pain and it showed a mild enlarged spleen. The ER Doctor suggested I see a hematologist.
My family Dr said not to worry because it's mild and blood work ok.
He also thinks I don't need to see hemotologist

I've been googling this and now have become worried.

Is it possible that it could be mildly enlarged because 5 days prior I had a virus ?(diarrhea and high fever)

Does an enlarged spleen mean leukaemia or cancer?
