Yes.: It is safe to say that there are millions of people in the US with gallstones. Thankfully, only about 10-20% develop symptoms; this is best treated by surgery once symptoms begin. As many as 500, 000-750, 000 of these operations are performed in the US yearly.

What alternative treatments exist for patients with gallbladder cancer?

Dr. Michael Zadeh

None: Surgery is the only method of achieving cure for gallbladder cancer. When not discovered incidentally during routine gallbladder surgery, gallbladder cancer usually presents in advanced stages. Therefore even with surgery, chances of total cure are low. Chemotherapy and radiation therapy, though used, have not proven to be very successful in treating this disease.
