General Surgeon 's  Response
Gall bladder has to be removed for Gallstone disease when there is pain in the upper part of the abdomen on right side below rib cage.
Gallstones are diagnosed incidentally many times.They will cause no symptoms in many people throughout their life.
So,if there is no pain,surgery is not needed.
Nothing to worry
Wish you good health
