What is the gallbladder?

The gallbladder is part of the digestion system. It is a pear-shaped, pouch-like organ that stores bile which is made in the liver. Bile is needed for the breakdown and digestion of food.


What is gallbladder cancer?


Cancer of the gallbladder is an uncommon disease. It is a disease where malignant cells are found in the tissues of the gallbladder. This disease is more commonly diagnosed in women.


Signs and symptoms of gallbladder cancer


Noticeable signs and symptoms of gallbladder cancer are minimal in the early stages of this disease, and these symptoms can mirror other diseases.

Symptoms could include:

  • Jaundice
  • Fever
  • Pain in the area of the stomach
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Lumpy mass in the abdomen

Traditional treatment options for gallbladder cancer


Due to the location of the gallbladder (hidden behind the liver), this disease can be difficult to detect. Treatment options could also include the use of toxic medicines. Your doctor may suggest:

  • Surgeryc
  • Radiotherapy
  • Chemotherapy

Radiation therapy may also be considered an option for some gallbladder cancer patients. Radiation therapy is used in an attempt to destroy cancerous cells and cause a reduction in tumor size. It is most often used for gallbladder cancer that has metastasized. Radiation therapy and chemotherapy are often performed simultaneously.
