Mildly enlarged liver 18cm echogenicity and contour normal all blood work normal. Could this just be my normal liver size? How enlarged is 18 cm?

See GI doctor...: You need to see a GI doctor, if you haven't already. It's difficult to know what is wrong with the description given.

If none of these signs is present, the diagnosis is unlikely. Consulting your physician is recommended. ...Read more

Wide normal range: though usually 12-15cm. 10cm is considered on the smaller end but a lot of of it has to do with your body size and the way the measurement was taken. If the liver tissue itself was normal and your liver function tests are fine, no reason to worry. ...Read more
