Depends on the stage: Of the cancer. Unfortunately, it is sometimes found in advanced stages, and it can invade the liver directly. If it is found incidentally on surgical specimen in a gallbladder removed for stones or infection, it will have a somewhat better prognosis. Get an opinion from an oncologist.
