hi. I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid about 6 weeks ago. Ive been put on 100mg of levothyroxine. For the last couple of weeks i've been feeling a 'bulge' under my left rib. G.P arranged an ultrasound which i had today. At the scan I was told that my spleen was 'unusually enlarged' but that's all he would tell me. I have to go back to my G.P in a couple of days.

Does anyone know if this is connected to my thyroid problem? I did the stupid thing and googled and all i've managed to do is scare myself!

There is a thyroid thread on here somewhere which i started for both under and over active thyroid problems, search it and someone may be able to help smile

Bumping for you again smile

I think there are lots of causes of enlarged spleen, most of them benign and treatable. Hang in there x
