Specializes in Hematology and Oncology

Splenomegaly (enlarged spleen) may be caused from liver issues. The liver can be fatty from problems with cholesterol, toxins such as alcohol, or having too much total body fat. Reviewing labs, imaging, and history with a primary or specialist physician may clarify.
