In brief: Indications

there are many indication, but most commonly due to gallstones and there possible sequelae to include abdominal pain, pancreatitis and cholangitis.
Other reasons are large gallbladder polyps (precancerous concerns) or gallbladder cancer (far less common that stones). Others may have classic gallbladder type pain and no stones, but a emptying dysfunction called gallbladder dyskinesia
