Has anyone besides myself been told that their liver measures twelve inches from top to bottom?

That sounds awfully large.

The liver should be a wedge shaped organ that is tucked up under the right hand side of the ribcage.

Notes indicate the "normal" dimensions are approximately: 21-22.5 cm across its widest point, 15-17.5 cm at its greatest vertical height, and 10-12.5 cm from front to back.

So, yours is about twice the normal height.

Look up hepatomegaly on the WWW for additional information.


Keep away from Alcohol and Tylenol and discuss the liver tests with your doctor.
