In brief: Pain, stones

The most classic symptom of gallbladder disease, is pain located in the right, upper abdomen beneath the ribs.
The pain is usually severe, associated with nausea and vomiting. The best test is an ultrasound of the gallbladder. If symptoms are present with a negative ultrasound a "hida" scan can be done. Symptoms usually get worse with time and once stones are proven surgery is the best treatment.
