Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out.

Gallbladder polyps are growths that arise from the inner lining of the gallbladder. Polyps can be cancerous but usually they are not.

The size of a gallbladder polyp can be a useful predictor of whether it is cancerous (malignant) or noncancerous (benign).

Gallbladder polyps that are smaller than 1 centimetre are usually noncancerous and require no treatment.

However, it makes sense to do regular follow-up examinations to look for any changes in gallbladder polyp that may be an indication of cancer. This can be done using the routine abdominal ultrasound.

Treatment of larger gallbladder polyps may include surgical removal of the gallbladder (cholecystectomy).

However, I must admit that it’s very difficult to diagnose and treat online and for the same you are requested to consult your treating doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
