GALLSTONES Overview

WHAT ARE GALLSTONES?


Gallstones are solid particles that are formed in the gallbladder which is a small sac like organ located below the liver on the right side of the abdomen and stores bile until needed.

Gallstones within the gallbladder usually don’t cause any symptoms unless they are arg ones or much in number and person takes heavy fatty meal. Another cause of pain could be obstruction if they block bile secretion from the gallbladder or they get stuck into the bile duct.

The size of the stone may vary from very small like a grain to as big as a golf ball and may be single or multiple in number.


Types of gallstones:

There are two types of gallstones:

Cholesterol stones: are formed when there is excess of cholesterol in the bile.

Pigment stones: are formed when there is excess of bilirubin in the bile.
