I tested positive for celiac disease through a blood test but waiting to get my biopsy done, but liver & spleen are enlarged can it be cancer?

If you have solid anti-gliadin antibody test, then a small bowel biopsy is probably not essential. Fatty liver, cirrhosis, circulatory issues might be worth excluding. ...Read more

Can a high protein diet cause a high globulin level on blood test? Also have iron level at 49the &i enlarged spleen. Advice?
I was in a car accident. I had chest and stomach pain. X-ray showed inflamed spleen and liver and blood test showed mono. Could accident manifest symptoms not present earlier?
No: Sorry to hear of your recent problems. The accident has nothing to do with the viral contagion which has manifested itself as mono. The infection causes swelling of the liver and the spleen, so does abdominal trauma from the accident. You could have have had sub-acute symptoms prior, that is the enlargement symptoms may have been under the radar, and accident has amplified the situation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
