Causes of polyp formation in the gallbladder

Causes of polyp formation in the gallbladder

To date, specialists can not accurately form the causes of the formation of polyps in the gallbladder, there are only theoretical guesses. According to many scientists, the presence of polyps in the gallbladder has an asymptomatic course, but if symptoms appear, then we will most likely talk about cholelithiasis and other associated diseases.

The formation of bile occurs in the liver, after which, along the ducts, it follows into the gallbladder, where its accumulation and concentration occurs. The final destination of the bile is the duodenum, where the main digestion of fats will take place.

For some reasons, there may be changes in the volume of the gallbladder, because of which its accumulative ability will suffer, with the subsequent formation of bile stasis. In turn, stagnation will have a direct and negative impact on the mucous membrane of the gallbladder - its destruction. Due to compensatory functions, the formation of polyps of various types and structures can occur - on a stem with a round head, or without a rod.

Polyps on the rod, even smaller than 10 mm, deserve close attention. Experts recommended to conduct research every six months (for 2 years), then annually. As soon as growth was noted - the polyp needs to be removed at once. Formations without a leg (rod) are considered more dangerous, it is precisely they that most often degenerate into malignant processes.


Removal of the polyps in the gallbladder is performed endoscopically - cholystectomy. Through the holes in the skin, into the abdominal cavity, special endoscopic equipment is introduced with a mini video camera at the end, which will allow to visualize the whole process. After the endoscopic removal of the gallbladder, the patient’s recovery process is much faster.
