I'm in the middle of a leukemia freak out (chronic lymphocytic leukemia to be specific). I've had a little discomfort just under my ribs on the left side and I'm worrying that my spleen is enlarged. Also, when I push in (only when standing - not laying down), I feel something in there (not sure what). Any idea if the spleen is that close to the surface that I could feel it myself? Thanks.
