Splenic Structure Found in CT Scan-Angiogram

Posted by @jcambrose, Aug 8, 2011

I’m a breast cancer patient, and had a CTA done on my abdomen in preparation of DIEP Flap reconstructive surgery. The radiologist found a “2.4 cystic structure” on my spleen, but didn’t describe it in any detail. Although my oncologist is not concerned and refers to the structure as a cyst, I have some concerned. After researching splenic cysts and tumors, I understand that malignant splenic metastases can be either solid or cystic structures. If anyone else has/had a splenic cystic structure, please let me know what your doctor recommended. Thanks.
