Abdominal discomfort. Scan shows enlarged liver. Treatment?

I have been having mild discomfort in the upper portion of right abdomen for some time. Got the ultrasound scanning of abdomen done. The report tells the following: what does it mean? And what is the treatment and remedy for this? Is this reversible? Liver measures approx 165 mm, appears enlarged in size, shape and echopattern. No parenchymal lesions identified. No evidence of intra/extrahepatic bilary tree dilation noted. Portal vein appears to be of normal size. Spleen - normal. No evidence of ascites or pleural effusion seen. Impression: Mild hepatomegaly .

Hallo friend ,

As per your symptom -mild discomfort in upper area of rt sided of abdomen.

And your usg showing nothing significant except mild hepatomegaly.

So no worry about liver sol or gall bladder stone.

Mostly your symptom is due to mild hepatomegaly or may be peptic ulcer which may be present like this.
Consult your physician,If you are alcoholic then stop it cause it may be the cause of your mild hepatomegaly..

  There are several causes of mild hepatomegaly. Common among them include fatty liver, viral hepatitis, drugs, alcohol etc. However, mild hepatomegaly can be a normal finding.There may not be any symptoms related to mild hepatomegaly. Sometimes, patients complain of discomfort in right upper abdomen.  The treatment and outcome of mild hepatomegaly depends upon the cause,if it can be found.
