I am a 42 year old female I had a

Patient : 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?
