Gallbladder & bile duct cancers & conditions
The gallbladder is a pear-shaped organ that rests on the liver. It stores and concentrates bile created by the liver, which is used to break down and digest fats in the body. The bile duct carries that bile to the digestive tract when it is needed.
If the gallbladder or bile duct becomes cancerous, or if gallstones are causing serious pain, surgery might be necessary to remove the cancer or any blockage.
