Lymphoma is a blood cancer disorder that could make a person's spleen become enlarged.

In brief: Yes

Several types can cause the spleen to enlarge including lymphoma, leukemia.
It can also enlarge with stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer - but the main reason the spleen gets larger is an infection like mono.
