In brief: Bleeding and pain

Ruptured or fractured spleen is usually from an accident, trauma, or injury.
It can cause internal bleeding and left upper abdominal pain. Lab tests and likely a ct scan will make the diagnosis. Some lesser splenic injuries will heal on their own, and a major spleen injury would need surgery to remove the spleen.
