Gallbladder is located on the upper right side of the abdomen and beneath the liver. It is a small, pear-shaped body storing bile. This liquid is secreted by the liver. Gallbladder cancer is seen rarely.
If gall bladder cancer is detected at an early stage, treatment chance is very high. However, some gallbladder cancers are detected very late when the symptoms are weak. It is very difficult to diagnose the gall bladder cancer, because it has not distinct symptoms. In addition, the relatively secretive structure of the gallbladder facilitates growth of the gallbladder cancer without identifying.
Consult your doctor if any of the above mentioned symptoms is observed.
The causes of the gallbladder cancer are not known. The doctors consider that gall bladder cancer occurs when healthy gall bladder cells develop changes in their DNA (mutations). These mutations cause cells to get out of control and continue to live normally when other cells die. Accumulated cells cause the formation of a tumor spread inside the gall bladder and other parts of the body. Sometimes, the gall bladder cancer begins in the glandular cells that align the inner surface of the gallbladder. Gallbladder cancer that starts in this type of cells is called adenocarcinoma. This term refers to the appearance of cancer cells when examined under a microscope.
Causes increasing the risk of gallbladder cancer include:
The treatment of the gallbladder cancer is surgical. Decision is adopted basing on the stage of cancer. In patients who were diagnosed after the operation performed because of gallbladder stone in very early stages, no further procedure is required, while radical surgery is performed in the second and third stages. If the gallbladder cancer has spread, the surgical procedure will be useless.
Thinking to get something without any effort is not anything than dreaminess.
