Hopefully not: Most individuals cannot feel their liver. It can be difficult for physicians to feel the liver unless it is enlarged. Normally on exam we may feel the distal edge, however, it is sometimes easier to percuss the size. In thin patients it can be easier. If someone has liver disease the liver edge can be found as low as the iliac crest or hip. Hope this helps, good luck.
