Lillie Why would the Gallbladder have to be removed? Why not just remove the polyp? Who would I see for this? A surgeon?? I see my GP local doctor tomorrow. Will see what she says about the result. She hasn't seen the report since the ultrasound. They seem to think that it is insignificant The ultrasound doctor who wrote the report. I wonder why he thinks that?? He doesn't even know if it is cancerous or not Or maybe the ultrasound can show this.. Thanks for your quick reply any more info?? Or cases you know of that have them removed? Take care
