Gall bladder is a small greenish balloon shaped reservoir located and adhered on the lower side of liver. Bile is a juice produced from the liver and is stored in the gall bladder.

Formation of gall bladder stones is very common in India especially in North India because of consumption high fat diet. Gallstones are more common in females than males.Gallstones usually don’t cause any problem and are asymptomatic in most of the patients. In a case you have multiple small stones, then stone may get stuck in the cystic duct causing obstruction to flow of bile to common bile duct.
