Hepatocellular: Diffuse hepatocellular problems are associated with fatty liver problems such as NASH or alcoholic liver problems. Hepatitis would cause a diffuse hepatocellular problem. The spleen and liver are part of the same vascular bed. A liver problem can cause increase pressure in symptoms and enlarge the spleen. The cyst is a separate issue.
