What Causes Polyps To Form In The Gall Bladder?
2. Will polyps form because of having more protein food like eating green gram sprouts, soaked ground nuts and coconut pulp.
3. R there any medicines or any way to cure the polyps in gal bladder rather than removing gal bladder itself.
Currently i am having multiple polyps highest measuring 0.7 mm...
4. Is there any way to get cure with Hiatus Hernia.
No, increased protein intake does not lead to gallbladder polyps.
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.R.K and I am pleased to assist you.
There are different types of polyps that can form in the gallbladder. This includes cholesterol polyps, inflammatory polyps, adenomatous polyps etc. Some are harmless and others can be malignant. The reason why they develop depends on the type and most often it is difficult to say why they form.
No, increased protein intake does not lead to formation of gallbladder polyps.
Most often the gallbladder polyps do not need any treatment. But if required, the only treatment option is surgical removal of the gallbladder.
Hiatal hernia also does not need any treatment as most often it remains without any symptom. But sometimes it can cause reflux symptoms which can be controlled with PPI medications like Nexium. Hiatal hernia as such can be treated surgically.
As u have mentioned abt diff types of polyps that can form in the gallbladder(cholesterol polyps, inflammatory polyps, adenomatous polyps etc. Some are harmless and others can be malignant.), how can we find out which type of polyp it is and whether is it harmless or can be malignant,
i had Whole abdomen scan, does the report say abt that, i couldn't find any thing related to this, r there any other tests\scans or scopy's etc to find out, if you are aware of those or if you can get from any of ur seniors or whoever it may be plz let me know...
Difficult to know the type of polyp
It is difficult to know the type of polyp from the ultrasound scan.
What usually done is, if the polyp is more than 10 mm in size, the gallbladder is removed and examined microscopically.
Polyps more than 10 mm most often have malignant component.
Yours is much less than that and unlikely to be malignant.
