Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Please attach the report of CT scan. Let me first evaluate it.

See splenic hamartomas are usually benign that is non-cancerous. Similarly, are renal angiomyolipomas. They are removed with surgical excision if they are causing any hematological disorders, a decline in renal functions. A lot of surgeons recommended the removal of these structures. A lot may not recommend you. At this point of time, your wife needs further evaluation. Meet an oncologist, vascular surgeon and get further tests done.
