I have an enlarged liver and spleen, is it dangerous ?
I made a quick search and found some causes but those causes are quite severe , could they be from a simple weight gain ? I'm 21 , healthy but overweight (280lb)
                     




Baa Baa
You need to find out why your liver and spleen are enlarged. It is not normal and whatever is causing it needs to be treated so they can return to normal. It can be a sign of liver damage, but you don't say how old you are or what your doctor is saying about it. I assume you had some testing done to determine that both are enlarged. What symptoms sent you to the doctor in the first place? If you are gaining weight on top of the enlarged liver and spleen, that also can be a sign of liver damage if the weight gain is fluid retention in the abdomen. If you own doctor ignores the problem, then go to a gastroenterologist to find out what is going on. An enlarged liver and spleen itself is not dangerous. What can be dangerous is why they are enlarged. It could be something minor, but whatever it is you need to find out.

your enlarged liver and spleen COULD be from mono. my sister had mono and a few of her organs started to swell causing yellowing of her skin. it could also be from excessive alcohol intake. either way you probably want to get it checked out because it's definitely not a good sign.. i've never heard of that being caused by weight gain before. going to a doctor is your best bet!
