Hello! Sometimes, the only way to "treat" it is gallbladder polyps removal. Now, the treatment depends on the size of it. Polyps that are smaller than 1 cm are safe to follow, On the other hand, it is recommended that polyps that are 6 mm in size or larger be considered for cholecystectomy. The worse case is chemotherapy. You know what this is, it is used in the adjuvant and palliative treatment of gallbladder cancer if you are diagnosed with it, but it is very, very rare. Aldo, that doesn't mean that it can't happen. So, because of the rarity of this cancer, the benefit of adjuvant treatment remains unproven.

I have gall bladder polyps. Burning, bladder spasms, discomfort under right ribs, right eye and right knee pain. Acupuncture helps. Doctors say that gall bladder polyps are "A SYMPOMATIC" that is a joke.
