I had a CT scan done. The report shows that I have an enlarged fatty liver measuring about 22.6 cm at the right midclavicular line. Is this considered a grossly enlarged liver? I have been a heavy drinker all my life. I have read that anything over 16 cm is enlarged. In my case, it is a way beyond the normal value.
