No Hepatomegaly is the condition of having an enlarged liver. Enlarged simply means larger than normal.

Liver inflammation is a reaction that occurs when liver cells are attacked by a disease-causing microbe or substance. When something harmful or irritating affects a part of our body, there is a biological response to try to remove it, the signs and symptoms of inflammation, specifically acute inflammation, show that the body is trying to heal itself.

What you should do next is see your doctor especially the one who ordered your tests. You should ask your doctor how best to treat your medical condition.

My only suggestion is if you drink alcohol, stop, as that can cause liver inflammation. It will help your doctor diagnose what is going on with your liver.

Good luck
