What are Gallbladder Polyps?

Description of the disease

Gallbladder polyps are small growths that form on the mucous membrane of the gallbladder. This condition often does not cause symptoms and is usually detected incidentally during a check-up or examination for another reason.


  • Cholesterol polyps
  • Adenomatous polyps
  • Inflammatory polyps


Usually, gallbladder polyps do not show symptoms. However, in rare cases, they may cause pain in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen, nausea, and vomiting.


The exact causes of gallbladder polyps formation are unknown. They may be associated with chronic inflammation of the gallbladder, unhealthy diet, obesity, and genetic factors.


Gallbladder polyps can be detected by ultrasound, computer tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging.


The decision about treating gallbladder polyps depends on their size and quantity, as well as the presence of symptoms. Small polyps that do not cause concern may simply be observed. Large or suspicious polyps may require surgical removal.


  • Maintaining a healthy lifestyle
  • Healthy diet
  • Avoiding obesity


Gastroenterologists carry out diagnosis, treatment, and observation of patients with gallbladder polyps.
