Consult a doctor. In the meantime, I would suggest that you peel a raw (green) papaya, make chop it into slices, boil and eat. Continue this for some days. If you know what is 'punarnawa' (in Goa and Maharashtra, it is called by same name), plant (you can find in places where cattle do not graze, I have personally seen in NCL campus), make khada of it and have it in doses of half glass two or three times a day.
Do not consume alcohol, avoid oily foods. Many people benefit from papaya (raw) and 'punarnawa'.

Hepatomegaly is the condition of having an enlarged liver. It is a nonspecific medical sign having many causes, which can broadly be broken down into infection, direct toxicity, hepatic tumours, or metabolic disorder. Often, hepatomegaly will present as an abdominal mass. Depending on the cause, it may sometimes present along with jaundice.
During a physical exam, your doctor can detect an enlarged liver on the right side of your abdomen. A variety of tests may also be needed to confirm the cause of an enlarged liver, including:

Blood tests to check for liver enzymes and other abnormalities related to liver disease.
CT scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or ultrasound to view the liver.
ERCP, a scope test to check for problems in the bile duct.
MRCP, a special MRI test to check the inside of the bile duct.
Liver biopsy, an examination of a sample of liver tissue to check for cancer or a fatty liver.
