Gallbladder stones can vary in size. Some people develop just one gallstone, while others develop many gallstones at the same time. The stones may stay in the gallbladder and cause no symptoms, or they may irritate the gallbladder wall or block gallbladder ducts, resulting in infection, inflammation and upper abdominal pain. It is possible for the infection to spread to the liver or pancreas. Treatment can range from pain relief to surgery. According to Dr. Samrat Jankar laparoscopic surgeon in Pune, “the excess cholesterol or bile forms crystals, which eventually form stones. The risk of developing gallstones tends to increase with age (especially after age 40 years)”.
