no phone call

Spleen do not enlarge due to injury unless there is bleeding in it.

Spleen in underneath the left lower chest. It is not on left hip.

I need more detail about the injury and your symptoms and if you can post some pictures.

Apologies for any intrusion of those automatic offers for phone calls. These are produced by the website automatically and outside of my control.

i dont have any symptoms aside from swelling and redness. so there's bleeding in it? will i be fine?

What is your age?

Was there a hip injury?

How did the injury occur?

How severe was the impact?

How big is the swelling and where is it exactly situated?

27, yes from playing goalie in soccer.. theres not one occurence i can think of.. just a lot of diving on turf.. next day a lot of bruising on left hip.. since then its swollen and it looks like i gained 20 points on the left side of my midsection.. it hurts a bit when i run, but i have been pretty active since.. this happened 10 days ago.. It doesnt hurt when i'm not doing anything.

Thanks for the additional information. I am writing the answer for you and will get back to you in 4-5 minutes. If you get a phone call request, you may ignore it as that is an automated site trigger. Thank you.

This seems to be some blood collection which is termed as hematoma.

A rest of two weeks is advised.

Following would be helpful;

1) Ice compresses.

2) Abdominal / back brace.

3) Tylenol.

4) Local analgesic cream / spray.

5) Avoid injuries.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

The fee was $25 correct?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Also, can i still work even though my job involves walking around for 2-3 miles over 9 hours?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Sometimes more miles

We experts do no know about the fee as it is seen by the site administration.

Walking is not prohibited usually.

Avoid those activities which are painful.

Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
