Calm, do not fear.: It depends on the type and the degree of enlargement. If it is due to muscle building from working hard, weight loss and taking medication for high blood pressure may help and there may be recovery. If big before of bad deposits in the heart like amyloid they now have treatment for it but you have to see a doctor. It may be big because of other diseases best discuss with a doctor/heart specialist.
