I was diagnosed with biliary cyst adenoma,( no stones present)..chronically inflamed gallbladder with a cyst developed right next to the gall bladder. It was surgically removed and I am doing well. 5 years later my younger sister was diagnosed with stage 4B gall bladder cancer, adenocarcinoma. There is one sister left with her gallbladder and having symptoms, no stones present in her either. Would it be most definitely in her best interest to have her gallbladder removed? In my opinion it would be,there is an extremely strong sibling history here. Please advise. Thank You.
