Depends.: If the stone is not bothering you most would say leave it alone. Others (me as well) would tell you that gall bladder cancer is rarely found without stones.

What causes a hunger kind of pain in the middle of the upper abdomen. Sometimes eating relieves the pain & other times no. Can it be my gallstones?!

PROBABLY NOT: Epigastric pain that is relieved by eating is typical of ulcer or gastritis. Gallstones, when symptomatic, usually cause pain after eating, especially after fatty or greasy foods. Some other entities can also cause this type of pain, including pancreas issues. I recommend you seek a direct medical opinion. Good luck. ...Read more
