An enlarged heart can be seen through a chest X-ray where the doctor will measure the size of the heart and see if it is over the normal range. As for a heart that is larger than it should be, it is usually caused by an enlarged heart muscle, much like the muscles in the locomotory muscles that enlarge in bodybuilders. This can happen because like any other muscle, excessive use of the heart muscle (in this case the heart rate) will increase muscle mass. This happens normally in athletes who do strenuous daily activities by exercising where it triggers a high heart rate and eventually the heart swells a little. However, abnormally, the heart can also swell due to a history of high blood pressure that has occurred for a long time because the heart is trying hard to fight against blood vessel resistance or blockage / narrowing of blood vessels.
While there's nothing to worry about, there's nothing wrong with regular checkups with your cardiologist, and start living a healthy lifestyle such as avoiding cigarettes, alcohol, and caffeine, as well as high-cholesterol foods. In addition, keep exercising regularly at least 45 minutes 3 times a week. Get enough sleep, and stay away from psychological stress. Here we attach an article about a swollen heart. Hope it is useful.
