Mildly enlarged liver, fatigue, itching, liver disease, what to do?

You're sick. Why?: You need to demand that your physician tell you what is wrong with your liver. To leave you without an answer is unacceptable. Do you have a medication allergy?

Nobody here can help you until you get a proper workup from a competent physician. ...Read more

Shouldn't: Cirrhosis causes splenomegaly through portal hypertension and splenic congestion; a mildly fatty liver should be well before this stage, and should not be the cause of a painful enlarged spleen. You should see a doctor for further evaluation and testing. ...Read more

Chances lymphoma with no noticeable enlarged lymph nodes? CBC, CMP normal. CT normal- mildly enlarged spleen 13cm

Chances lymphoma with no noticeable enlarged lymph nodes? CBC, CMP normal. CT normal- mildly enlarged spleen 13cm

Very Low chance: It is reassuring that there aren't any enlarged lymph nodes, and you have a normalCBC. If there is a lymphoma, it is a very hard to detect one. And it is not causing any problems to the body. I would leave it alone. Get a check up maybe in 6 months- just labs, ldh and a physical exam or ultrasound for the spleen. Spleen sizes also vary quite a lot, but good to keep an eye on it. ...Read more

Ultrasound showed enlarged liver and spleen. Ct results 6 days later showed my liver grew 3 cm. liver enzymes are normal. Need direction. Thanks?

Ultrasound showed enlarged liver and spleen. Ct results 6 days later showed my liver grew 3 cm. liver enzymes are normal. Need direction. Thanks?

How do you FEEL?: And why did you have the ultrasound done? Liver size varies from hour to hour depending on blood volume and whether you're digesting dinner versus running a marathon. Three percent of humankind have a palpable spleen for no obvious reason. Some folks have a low-slung liver that's easy to feel; others have a biggish or odd-shaped right lobe. Doubt this exploration will find anything worth treating. ...Read more

My mastoid lymph nodes are swollen & I have autoimmune liver hepatitis.

Enlarged lymph nodes: I'm not quite sure what you are asking. If you are concerned about the lymph node swelling, often lymph nodes swell with infection of various types, then go back to normal, or close to normal. If persistent LN swelling and/or several enlarged nodes, and getting bigger, you need to be checked. ...Read more

How long?: How long have your platelets been elevated? Any lymph nodes felt? Is your white blood count elevated? A lot of missing information. Any night sweats? Given your age, certain things can be ruled out but would consider doing a bone marrow biopsy. Why did you have a liver biopsy if spleen big? Was there a concern for cirrhosis? Need more information.

Increased /coarse hepatic parenchymal echotexture (liver parenchymal disease ) with prominent portal vein and splenomegaly?  Wat it means

Severe damage: When damage to the liver occurs for a long time, meaning years, the liver becomes scarred and the veins that bring blood to the liver become distended because of resistance inside the liver. This increased pressure causes the spleen to take more blood and become enlarged. This is called cirrhosis of the liver and can be due to any number of things including alcohol and viral hepatitis. ...Read more

You do: You still have fatty liver. It is imperative that you lose weight and exercise. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
