Would a 17 mm cyst in my spleen cause anemia? What would determine if the cyst needs to be removed?
A cyst in spleen doesn't cause anemia. When the cyst is too large to compress surrounding tissues and cause pain, or there's a risk of spread of infection, surgery is necessary.
Can it be genetic ??! I am considering having a baby. So can the rate be predicted by exam?
Yes, anemia can be genetic. Doctors will help you to know if it's genetic. If it's genetic, you may discuss with your doctor about the change of passing it to next generation. It's case by case. Having a baby is an important decision that deserves careful planning, right?
