The causes of gall bladder cancer are not entirely known, however there are some associated risk factors such as: having gall stones, polyps (benign tumours of the gall bladder), abnormal bile ducts, a family history of gall bladder cancer, smoking and obesity. The signs of gall bladder cancer can be varied, and in 1 in 5 cases, the cancer is only discovered during surgery to remove gall stones. Symptoms include: pain in the upper right abdomen, weakness, loss of appetite or rapid weight loss, jaundice, nausea, vomiting and darkening of urine colour. At the LOC there are private treatments for gall bladder cancer, all performed by highly trained specialists who can help plan and implement the best course of treatment.
