Hi. I was told last year i had the same on my gallbladder. went for numerous ultrasound scans over few months and was then referred back to hospital to be to told that all was fine and no growth. Got to go back in a year to see if they have grown if not then carry on as normal if they have then may need Gallbladder removed but norhing to worry yourself about. Have they said what size it/they are?

Hi thanks for your reply. The radiology person didn't say just said that she had seen one on the scan but that my gp would be in touch ! Hasn't been the cause of my pain either so I'm guessing I've got more tests coming my way !

I've got a gallbladder polyp, found via ultrasound for something else, no symptoms just six monthly scans to monitor size. So far no change in 3 years! Theyre pretty common.
