Hi! Recently, doctor told me that I have enlarged liver. I will have other tests because doctor wants to determine cause for hepatomegaly. What can be cause of hepatomegaly? Doctor didn’t tell me what tests I will have. Do you know what diagnostic tests include?

Hi! General causes of hepatomegaly include infection, malignancy, anemias, storage diseases, heart failure, congenital heart disease, toxins, and metabolic disturbances.
Diagnostic tests to determine the cause of the hepatomegaly vary depending on the suspected cause, but may include: Abdominal x-ray, ultrasound of the liver, CT scan of the abdomen, liver function tests, including blood clotting profiles. Good luck!
