I have a nagging pain under my left breast. Increased pain

This answer was rated:

I have a nagging pain under my left breast. Increased pain has made me look and feel closer around the location. I am sure it is swollen compared to the right side, it is painful to touch and prod. Following my stroke in September 2014 I have had problems passing urine ( slow) or controlling it. I feel that the pain area and bladder control are related. The spleen is in the area of pain. What do you think? Thankyou

Yes, this could be your spleen for sure

A swollen spleen can be a sign of many things

a lot of blood disorders can do it

I would start with an ultrasound of your belly

that will show it
