can fatigue be a symptom of cancer in the spleen?


Posted by izzykins5

I have been having stomach and abdominal pain.  My gastro ordered a CAT scan that showed some enlargement of the pancreas and spots or lesions inside the spleen.  During an endoscopic ultrasound, the doctor saw no growths or masses anywhere to biopsy, so a PET scan has been scheduled.  In addition to the abdominal or stomach pain, I am having increasing fatigue.  Also, a colonoscopy has been scheduled in the next couple of weeks.

When I looked up the symptoms, fatigue was one of the symptoms of cancer of the spleen but as I'm sure you know fatigue can be caused by just about anything.

So don't worry until you're told to worry is what I try to live by. ;)
