What is Gallstones?
Gallstones are solidified digestive fluid deposits that can develop in the gallbladder. Your gallbladder is a tiny, pear-shaped organ located directly under your liver on the right side of your belly. Bile is a digestive fluid that is stored in the gallbladder and discharged into the small intestine.
Gallstones can be as tiny as a grain of sand or as big as a golf ball in size. Some people grow one gallstone at a time, while others acquire many gallstones at once.
Such gallstones are the most prevalent type with almost 80% falling under the same category, and are generally known to have a yellowish tint. Gallstones are predominantly made up of undissolved cholesterol, although they may also contain other substances.
When your bile contains too much bilirubin, the same may manifest itself into such dark brown or black stones.
Gallstone symptoms vary depending on the size of the gallstone. The majority of gallstones generate no symptoms at all. Silent stones are gallstones that do not require treatment. Gallstones can produce a variety of symptoms, including:
- Upper mid-abdominal or upper-right-abdominal pain
- Right shoulder discomfort as a result of the condition
