About Gallbladder Polyps

Early Detection and Treatment is Important

If ignored, there is the possibility that gallbladder polyps can cause gallbladder cancer, which has proven to almost always be fatal. Since you might have polyps in your gallbladder and not even know it, you will want to educate yourself on the risks and symptoms of polyps in the gallbladder.

A gallbladder polyp can develop whenever lesions start to form inside of the wall of the gallbladder and project into the gallbladder interior. An abdominal ultrasound or gallbladder surgery might be the first time that a patient becomes aware that they even have polyps. To know whether or not polyps are benign or malignant, it is recommended that patients turn to the surgical experts at miVIP Miami. 

Prevalence of Gallbladder Polyps

The National Institute of Health reports that:

·       Almost six percent of America’s population might have polyps in their gallbladder

·       Not all of these cases will result in a malignant cancer

·       Men around 50 years old are more likely to develop polyps

What Causes Polyps?

Since there are different types of polyps, there are different causes of polyps. Those that are harmless might be caused by high levels of cholesterol in the gallbladder, an inflamed gallbladder or gallstones. Any polyps in the gallbladder that are malignant are called gallbladder carcinomas.

Prevalent Symptoms

There are not very many specific symptoms for polyps, and some patients might not show any symptoms at all. Those who do have polyps might experience:

·       Gallbladder inflammation

·       Vomiting

·       Nausea

·       Jaundice

·       Pain in the upper abdomen on the right side
