If you spin a basketball fast enough, it would have a noticable bulge at its equater. Just like earth, which has a larger circumference along its equater than along its north-to-south poles because it is spinning. This probably doesn`t answer the question you asked, but its just something to think about when you refer to a spining galaxy as being disc shaep rather than spherical.
