Enlarged Liver
Dec 30, 2009

Is an enlarged live a sign of a Hep A,B, or C infection? My PCP said my liver was large, but smooth with no bumps that he could feel during an annual physical exam. Also, why is there no vaccine for Hep A and C?

Response from Dr. McGovern

A swollen liver can be due to many causes - not just viral hepatitis.

You will need multiple laboratories and imaging with a ultrasound at the very least.

There is a vaccine for hepatitis A, but not for hepatitis C. Scientists are working on HCV vaccine aggressively...
