2. An Enlarged Liver
The liver is a fairly wide organ that sits relatively close to the surface of your body, so physical changes are sometimes more pronounced than they would be in other organs. Bumps or swelling on the right side under the lower ribs can indicate an enlarged liver, which often comes with a feeling of fullness.
