In brief: Does not enlarge

Your heart valves don't enlarge.
They can get thickened or calcified. They can get infected or destroyed by infection. The structures that support the heart valves can get stretched or rupture, but the valves themselves don't get enlarged. Heart chamber can get enlarged.
