I am a 50 yr old female who recently had an abdominal ultrasound done and the results showed my liver is 17.6cm. What can I do about it?

In brief: That measurement

is borderline. There are also normal anatomic variations in which the right lobe of the liver is elongated.
So the first step is to talk to your doc about whether it is actually abnormal or not. If it is abnormal enlargement, there are numerous potential causes and the treatment would be for the underlying problem.
