How much time does it take for liver to enlarge to 20cm?days,weeks,months,years?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Liver enlargement : The liver has a capsule around it, so if you stretch that rather quickly (days) as might occur with an acute infection, it will hurt alot. If it's a slowly progressive disease, the liver enlargement could take place over months to years and may not be as noticeable. Definitely good though to get the diagnosis nailed down to best plan out the treatment. The good news is that the liver is resiliant
