In brief: Go to ER for CT scan
The most sensitive and specific test to diagnose injury to the spleen is a ct of the abdomen.
Blunt trauma to the abdomen, like what can occur when falling down stairs, should be taken very seriously. This requires emergency room evaluation.

In brief: You may not!
This can cause bleeding, abdominal pain, shock and can be delayed sometimes with capsular tear and later leakage.
Testing is required to make the diagnosis.
