In brief: Typically

enlargement of the lacrimal gland would be associated with infection, either bacterial or viral.
Most often there would also be pain. Some systemic (body-wide) diseases can cause this as well: sarcoidosis, TB, leukemia. Or a tumor, either benign or malignant. A careful history (story), careful ocular examination by an eye specialist, and an orbital CT scan are needed. Good wishes:)
