Wikipedia states that the liver is the largest internal organ in the human body.

How does it relate to the sizes of ex. the lungs and small intestines? I've been having this personal image for years that the lungs were the biggest organs in our body.

Following through, what would be the size order of the human organs?

Size means volume but mass also matters. Just a simple glance at wikipedia will get you the answer. Or for more details you can refer any book on anatomy. –  WYSIWYG Apr 28 '13 at 7:20
