Raises the issue of platelets disorders versus coagulation disorders both needs to be tackled by a hematologist since our concern is underlying serious disease i.e. Leukemia require skilled hematologist to be be ruled out.

Difficult to say: Too little data to make a definitive comment. Bleeding and splenomegaly may be associated with leukemia but there are many other possible causes so one should not jump to conclusions. Consultation with your doctor is recommended.
