Ask your surgeon: "Problems" is a very broad and vague word. Covers constipation to blood clots to infection to urgency. Ask your surgeon about any concerns.

Yes.: Both benign and malignant tumors can develop within the gallbladder. A tumor is often found as a polyp on ultrasound; although an overwhelming majority are benign, we recommend removing the gallbladder if the polyp is 1 CM or larger. Cancers typically present incidently during gallbladder removal or at advanced states, due to their propensity to spread to the liver.
