Brief Answer:
Yes this suggests cancer

Detailed Answer:
Hi
thanks for your query.

Though you have not mentioned regarding the symptoms of the patient, as per this report it looks like cancer of gall bladder.

Of course, a biopsy is required to confirm it.

Hope this helps. I will be available for further follow up queries.

Brief Answer:
Advice further investigations then surgery

Detailed Answer:
I would recommend a whole body PET CT scan and CT guided FNAC or biopsy to confirm and stage the disease. Then go for surgery if feasible, that too by oncosurgeon.

These things are better done in a comprehensive cancer center.
