I am 49 years old, I had a very bad pain on the right side of my body under my breast, with radiating pain to lower stomach, and chest area. I went to the doctor after a weekend of doubled over pain and very sore to touch. the dr. ordered a gallbladder sonogram. I have a gallbladder polyp 7mm. I have an appointment with a surgeon tomorrow. Should I be concerned, the polyp has increased in size.
Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your query. There is no specific cause of gallbladder polyp and it may grow in any man. In most cases this is benign condtition and sometimes it may cause pain similar to gallbladder stones pain. Rarely ,poylps may have malignant potential and in such cases cholecystectomy is recommended as soon and they are discovered.
Wish you good health. Regards
