In brief: See below.
Gb polyps affect 5% of the adult population.
Exact cause is not known but related to age and presence of gallstones which in turn is related to obesity as well.

Most are not cancers, but cancer can develop from polyps. Monitor with SONO; > 1cm consider surgery

In brief: Bad luck
What size are they? Speak with a general surgeon about this.
Take your ultrasound report so they can evaluate the size and characteristics. I would not ignore this without first discussing with a surgeon.
