Maybe.: How large are you? If you are small or average height and weight then your liver is mildly enlarged. If you are a taller and heavier person, then your liver size could be your normal.

Ct scan to investigate possible lyphoma came back normal but liver size was at top of normal size range. Shud i worry about this? Sign of lymphoma?

I had fatty liver,lost weight second scan result (Liver normal size,shape,echotexture. No gallstone), is fatty liver gone? But bilirubin 47 ALT 134

Not sure.: without seeing all of the liver test results, it is difficult to comment on what may be happening. Obviously, with your ALT elevated, there is still something wrong. I would return to your gastroenterologist for further explanation and evaluation. Good luck. ...Read more
