My husband is complaining about the pain in his stomach every time he eats something. Till now, he had no health problems. He went to doctor and was examined. He also gave his blood to be tested. the doctor said that maybe he has condition with his gallbladder. While we are waiting for the results, can someone tell me more about conditions related to the gallbladder?

Patients with gallbladder stones are experiencing abdominal pain or pressure discomfort that can last even one day and they are diagnosed with ultrasonography or by oral cholecystography. The removal of gallbladder and the stones is the best treatment for the patients and the procedure of removal is called cholecystectomy. If there are no abdominal symptoms, then there are no indications for cholecystectomy. Sometimes, the cholecystectomy is indicated for patients with gallbladder pain who do not have the gallstones. Cholecystectomy is performed using laparoscopic techniques or through abdominal incision. One other condition of gallbladder are polyps. They are not so uncommon. About 4% of gallbladders examined by ultrasound will have evidence of polyp formation. However, the finding of gallbladder polyps does not imply increased risk for cancer even though adenomatous polyps can progress to cancer, but they are in minority. They consist of cholesterol, muscle tissue or inflammatory tissue. The risk of cancer in an adenomatous gallbladder polyp is related to its size. I hope that everything will be ok with your husband.
