24 year old - enlarged liver - doctor doesn't care

For about 6 months now I have been having an enlarged liver. My fiance first noticed it in bed when he was rubbing my stomach and felt a hard circle type lump. I freaked out and immediately went to the doctor. The doctor felt it and did feel the lump and I was sent for an ultrasound.

Ultrasound came back showing there was a mild enlargement of 17.5cm. All of my blood tests came back normal, but my ERC (which measures inflammation in the body) was 2 points above normal, but my doctor said that wasn't a big deal.

Anyway, I am 24, I have never smoked, never done drugs and I do not abuse alcohol. I do have stress in my life though - completing my last year of school, and I have this constant yet very mild achy feeling in my right side - my liver is always enlarged.

My doctor said she's not concerned because it's only mildly enlarged, but it still bothers me. When I drink alcohol I feel the enlargement more.

I did get a second opinion on this and the other doctor agreed with my primary - there is nothing to do / it's only mildly enlarged. But I can't help but think this ISN'T normal to be feeling your liver and having it ache at times.

FWIW, I'm healthy, thin, generally feel fine most of the time, and I don't have hepatitis, yellowing of the skin etc.

Why doesn't my doctor care?? Should I demand to see a hepatologist?? Does anyone have any experience with this??

Thank you very much. This website is wonderful.

  • Hi lawgirl,Did you look into the PPC I told you about a few months back?If you do you're research on this, you'll find this PPC is the most powerful liver protectant known to man. It is even helping people with Hepatitis-C live longer with less damage during interferon treatment. American doctors have never been big believers in supplements, but in Europe they've been prescribing this under the name "Essentiale Forte" for decades.No side effects either... Magical stuff! No matter what's wrong with your liver, PPC (polyenylphosphatidylcholine), brand names "PhosChol" and "HepatoPro" will fix it. PPC is such a powerful liver protectant, it even works against carbon tetrachloride poisoning in animal studies. It's only sold online right now, and it's not cheap, but it will fix your liver. Please do some research on this, and you will see, PPC is well documented by many legitimate scientific studies as the most powerful liver supplement ever known. Dr C. S. Lieber did a lot of research with PPC and the liver. Include his name in your searches for best results. No, I don't sell this stuff, I just tell people about it... I had some liver problems mixing alcohol with chemicals I was exposed to at work. PPC fixed me up, and I spread the word on this as much as I can. I can't believe American doctors haven't discovered this stuff yet... They've been prescribing it in Europe for decades under the name "Essentiale Forte". Good Luck, & GodSpeed to you!
