Learn more: It's common for blood clots to follow blood flow to the spleen, and if a part of it has been infarcted (died from lack of blood flow) it's not a big deal though it can be uncomfortable. It's important you learn the name of the disease that affects your blood clotting, and whether it needs to be managed. Best wishes. Be proactive.
