Enlargedliver is called Hepatomegaly .It isn't a disease. It's a sign of an underlying problem, such as liver disease, congestive heart failure or cancer.
There is a large number of conditions that can cause hepatomagaly including:cirrhosis ,hepatitis,Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease ,Alcoholic fatty liver disease,heart failure,cancer etc

Hi thanks for using HCM. Yes this can be reduced if we remove the causative agent like infection or obstruction or some drugs.

Thanks for the query
Enlargedliver is always pathological and should be evaluated for in detail. Please approach a gastroentrologist for further follow up.
Most common reasons are fatty liver, infections, tumour and alcoholism.
Do not ignore this any further and get it evaluated as soon as possible
