Hello.
There have been some studies which have been published by the American journal of gastroenetrology which has shown that the removal of gall bladder actually increases the risk of colon cancer. However in theory this can be proven due to the increase amount of bile in the intestine which makes the intestine wall more prone to chemical injury and causing symptoms of diarrhea and acidity. However the experts also recommend that this should not be a factor in determining whether to remove the gall bladdder.
