Gallbladder Cancer

Gallbladder cancer begins when there is abnormal growth of cells in the gallbladder, the organ that stores bile before releasing it into the intestine. Often you may see no signs or symptoms. But in other cases, gallbladder cancer symptoms may include abdominal pain or bloating, nausea and loss of appetite.

When gallbladder cancer is discovered early, your chances for a full recovery are very good.

If your doctor or health care provider suspects that you have gallbladder cancer, he or she may refer you to a gastroenterologist who specializes in digestive conditions, a surgeon, or an oncologist who specializes in gallbladder cancer treatment.

You'll take comfort in knowing that the specialists at Mercy are experienced in treating all forms of gallbladder cancer. Our professionals use the latest diagnostic tools to diagnose your condition. And they have the expertise to answer your questions. We can, and have, helped patients with the same diagnosis.

Whatever the treatment, you can count on comprehensive, coordinated care from Mercy's team of cancer specialists. We'll work with you to determine what's right for you.
