What is a Gallbladder?

A gallbladder is a small, hollow, pear-shaped organ located beneath the liver where bile, produced by the liver, is stored, concentrated and finally released into the small intestines.

According to the best gallbladder surgeon in Kolkata, a gallbladder plays a major role in your digestive system. It stores the fat produced by the liver, which helps the body’s digestive system to break down fats. However, the gallbladder is also connected to the other parts of the digestive system through a series of bile ducts called the biliary tract, which helps to carry the bile from the liver to the small intestine.

    What are the common conditions that can affect your gallbladder?

    According to a gallbladder specialist, there are several conditions that can affect your gallbladder. For instance, the most common condition is gallstones, while the rarest one is Gallbladder Cancer.

    • Gallstones :

    Gallstones are tiny pebble-sized objects formed by the crystallization of bile in the gallbladder. They can be as small as sand grains or as large as golf balls. According to the best gallbladder surgeon in Kolkata, gallstones are pretty common and mostly harmless. However, sometimes gallstones can cause pain, nausea, or inflammation.

    • Cholecystitis:

    Cholecystitis is the infection of the gallbladder, often due to the presence of gallstones. The condition can cause severe pain and fever and might require surgery if the infection continues or recurs.

    • Gallstone Pancreatitis:

    Gallstone pancreatitis occurs when an impacted gallstone blocks the ducts that drain the pancreas. Inflammation of the pancreas can result in a serious condition.

    • Gallbladder Cancer:

    Although rare, Gallbladder Cancer can occur, especially in older age. Gallbladder cancer can cause attacks of biliary pain, yellowing of the skin, and expected weight loss.
