4 doctors weighed in:

Mom has a small polyp in the lumen of gall bladder.Is it is a big deal?

3 doctors agree

In brief: If removed

Gall bladder polyp will have high incidence of malignancy especially if it is over 2cm, if gall bladder is removed no 'big deal' by a simple surgery, if it transforms to malignancy, cancer of gall bladder has very poor prognosis.
