Background information on Gallbladder Cancer [When available]

Gallbladder cancer is a relatively uncommon cancer predominatly found in females. If it is diagnosed early enough, it can be cured by removing the gallbladder. Most often it is found after symptoms such as abdominal pain and jaundice occur, and it has spread to other organs such as the liver.

It is a rare cancer that is still being studied and thought to be related to gallstones building up, which also can lead to calcification of the gallbladder, a condition known as Porcelain gallbladder. Porcelain gallbladder is also rare and most people with porcelain gallbladder also have gallbladder cancer. The conection is uncertain. The outlook is poor for recovery if the cancer is found after syptoms have started to occur.
