Muscle spasm: Upscale spasm of the abdominal wall (or muscle strain, tear, etc.) can ALS be a cause. Sometimes people will even feel a bulge which sounds like a hernia, but may in fact be the contracting muscle. Usually the area is manually massaged, and there is pain relief after a few minutes. A ct scan should be able to tell the difference, but it is very unlikely to be a hernia in that area. Try aspercreme.See 1 more doctor answer

Usually the terms used are cysts or lesions or masses. Whether it needs further evaluation or not. More info would be helpful. However lesions of the spleen aren't common and usually are benign. You may want to ask your doctor for more info.
