As for your enlarged abdomen on the left, it can also occur due to several conditions above, for example pregnancy or ovarian cysts. It could also, stomach enlargement actually arises due to other conditions, such as dyspepsia, hernias, obstructive ileus, myomas, skin infections, injuries around the stomach, obesity, urinary retention, and so on.
