In brief: Gallbladder polyp

Depends on symptoms and size of polyps.
If no symptoms and polyps are less than 10mm in size, American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy recommends annual ultrasounds. If polyps increase in size surgical removal of gallbladder is recommended. In one large study about 3.5% of polyps increased in size within a year. Yours seem stable. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
