Gall Bladder Stones- Symptoms, Prevention, and Myths
Gallstones are not a disease, they are a symptom of an underlying condition. Gallstones develop when the gall bladder cannot release bile into the small intestine because there is too much cholesterol, bilirubin, and other substances in the bile. Gallstones are a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide. The gallbladder is a small organ in the abdomen, beneath the liver. It stores bile, which is made by the liver and helps with digestion. Gallstones are hard deposits that form in the gallbladder, usually when bile contains too much cholesterol or bilirubin.
The gall bladder is located on the right side of your abdomen below your rib cage, just below your liver. It stores bile that helps digest fats and breaks down food in your intestines. When you eat, it passes through the stomach to the intestines where it mixes with food and digestive juices from other organs to form a stool. The gallbladder releases bile into the small intestine to help digest fats and break down food into smaller particles so that they can be absorbed by the body. Gallstones are a common cause of acute and chronic pain in the upper right abdomen.
Gallstones are small, hard deposits that form in the gallbladder. They are made of cholesterol and other substances that collect in the gallbladder, forming hard masses. Gallstones can be as small as a grain of sand or as big as a golf ball. They may be yellow, brown, or black in color and they may contain pieces of fat or calcium.
