Hey there,
Here are synonyms related to cholelithiasis: gallstones, gallstone disease, gallbladder stones, pure cholesterol gallstones, pure pigment gallstones…
So, gallstone or cholelithiasis is one of the most common surgical problems. Gallstones are abnormal and inorganic masses (stones!!!). They are formed in the gallbladder, less commonly in bile. They cause abdominal pain and dyspepsia.
Possibility of getting gallstones increases with age and women are more likely to get it then men (ratio 2: 1). Usually women in 40ties will get them, besides oral contraceptive pills with high estrogen increase the incidence of gallstones; also obesity increases the possibility of gall stones.
