In brief: None

If the polyp is 1 cm or larger, the gall bladder should be removed.
If it is smaller than 1 cm and you do not have symptoms suggestive of gb disease, then it can be followed with us studies. If you have typical symptoms of biliary colic, then removal of the gb is the only effective treatment.
