Dear friend, welcome to HCM!

Pain on left does correlate with enlarged liver.
However he has increased echogenecity of the liver on USG. this indicates a possible chronic liver disease.

He needs to be evaluated in detail including a physical examination, blood profile (CBC, urine routine, LFTs, urea, creatinine, lipid profile, ECG, Xray chest) and a gastro enterologist opinion.

Please see a good physician first to start the evaluation.
Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck!
I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily.
Thank you!
