I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

I have two small gall bladder polyps (4-5 mm), will it create any problem in pregnancy ?

I am 32 yr old male & have been detected with two small Gb polyps, 4-5 mm in size, during a routine health check. I have no other problem or symptom as per my complete health check report. A doctor has advised me to get my gall bladder removed, but I am not convinced. Pls suggest what should I do.

Hi Shailender,

Welcome to HCM.

I presume the GB polyps were detected during routine ultrasound examination. I suggest you consult a gastroenterologist and most probably it will have to be doubly confirmed and if it is proved beyond doubt that you have polyp in the Gall Bladder, then yes it is advisable to have your GB removed.
