Gallbladder polyps are basically small growths of mucous tissue or even collections of cholesterol found in gallbladder. Since your gallbladder polyp is only 4mm in size, chances are that it is not dangerous, especially if it is not accompanied by gallbladder stones. Do you have any symptoms that could possibly be related to this condition, or did you have the ultrasound for some other reason? Usually, when the polyp causes no symptoms no treatment is necessary, but when there are gallbladder stones or the polyp is large it is removed by laproscopic surgery, which is pretty much routine now days.

Hi. Yes, they are small growths that are commonly found in the gallbladder and they are often made up of cholesterol. Sometimes, it seems like this is something that should not be your concern,  but they can also be cancerous. But remember, they are cholesterol build - up, not a cancer cells. People very often are making this mistake. Like everything that grows in or on your body, you should check the size because of size matters. To get a good look at the gallbladder, an ultrasound is typically performed in this situation. Gallbladder polyps will usually be seen on an ultrasound, and their size is measured. In order to prevent some future problems, a doctor can recommend you gallbladder polyps removal
