Enlarged Spleen (Splenomegaly) (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Prevention of splenomegaly in itself may be meaningless. Some of the medical causes of splenomegaly, however, may be preventable, such as cessation of alcohol abuse to prevent liver cirrhosis, or prophylaxis against malaria when planning a trip to an endemic area.
Preventive measures against a possible rupture of spleen are noteworthy. Avoiding contact sports and wearing seat belts are important measures to take in the prevention of splenic rupture.
Proper vaccination in patients with splenectomy is also of great significance as noted earlier.
