Has your son been seen by a cardiologist? My son's cardiologist was able to verify this at his appointment. They did an echocardiogram and he was able to see everything clearly. My son also rarely gets sick, but he got pneumonia and that is what led to the chest x-ray when we went to the ER. The spleen is what removes old red blood cells from the blood supply and removes, stores and produces white blood cells. These then produce antibodies which help remove microbes from the blood supply. The fact that he doesn't get sick often is a good sign that his spleen is fine. I'm not a doctor, but the cardiologist will definately be able to confirm this at his consultation.
