You should establish a follow-up plan with your GI doctor.
These polyps should be followed-up using standard abdominal ultrasound or endoscopic ultrasound
Thank you for using HCM.
First of all, is a good think that your polyp size is small, because eventhough in 95 % of the cases the polyps are benign , there are rare cases of cancerous polyps. The size of a gallbladder polyp
can help predict whether it's cancerous (malignant) or noncancerous (benign). Small gallbladder polyps that are less than 10 millimeters in diameter, as in your case, are unlikely to be cancerous and generally don't require treatment. However, these polyps should be followed-up using standard abdominal ultrasound or endoscopic ultrasound, to look for changes that may be an indication of cancer. In most of the cases they are asymptomatic and are often detected incidentally. However,as in your case, the polyps may cause occasionally pain in the right abdomen, due to intermittent obstructions caused by small fragments of cholesterol
that become detached from the gallbladder mucosa.
So how to deal with these polyps ?
See a gastroenterologist and make a follow-up plan.
In case of repeated pain , consider cholecystectomy
. In this way you avoid either long term surveillance of the polyps.
Hope this is helpful.
