Enlargement of the liver compared to the normal state is referred to as "enlarged liver". This condition can be a manifestation of various problems. (1)
Enlargement of the liver leads to compression of the surrounding organs and intestines and to dilation of the sheath that surrounds the liver. These phenomena can cause abdominal pain. However, the liver itself does not generate pain because it does not contain any nerve endings. (1)
WHAT CAUSES LIVER ENLARGEMENT?
Excessive alcohol consumption, daily alcohol consumption (even a small amount of alcohol consumed daily can lead to liver disease)
Over-eating and eating fatty, heavy foods (especially for people who have difficulty digesting heavy foods)
