Gallbladder/pancreas: Usually you start with a history and physical and many times a doctor can tell you whether or not one of these organs is affected. An ultrasound can show you gallstones or inflammation around the gallbladder. It wouldn't visualize the pancreas as well- a dedicated ct scan using pancreatic protocol would be better.

What to do if I have an enlarged thyriod with multiple nodules. What am i to expect if I have it removed?

Approach it like an adult. Almost everyone, sooner or later, will get sick with something.

Caution advised: I would advise caution with "cleanses". Your liver is not "dirty" and does not need cleaning. Gallstones can cause problems if they either block the opening of the gallbladder, or block the passage of bile into the small intestine. I would show your doctor your specific cleanse product, and get their opinion. There are a variety of these cleanses, with widely differing ingredients. ...Read more
