Frequently Asked Questions

What are gallstones?

Gallstones are hard particles that develop in the gallbladder, which is a small organ located below the liver. Gallstones range in size, from a grain of sand to a golf ball. The gallstones in the gallbladder may be either small or large.

What are the types of gallstones?

There are two types of gallstones, which include:
Cholesterol stones: These stones are yellowish green in color. This is the most common type of gallstone, accounting for about 80% of the gallstones.
Pigment stone: These stones are smaller when compared to cholesterol stones and are also darker in color. It is made up of bilirubin.

What are the symptoms of gallstones?

The gallstones are formed due to an imbalance in the production of bile or cholesterol. Excess production of either cholesterol or bilirubin or low production of bile salts may cause the formation of gallstones.
Also, gallstones may be formed when the gallbladder fails to empty the bile present in it as the accumulation of bile in the gallbladder may increase the bile concentration which causes the
formation of stones.
