Gallbladder & Biliary Diseases

Gallbladder and biliary diseases affect the digestive system, particularly the gallbladder and bile ducts. Common conditions include gallstones, inflammation (cholecystitis), and obstruction of the bile ducts. Gallstones, formed from cholesterol or bilirubin, can cause intense pain and complications like pancreatitis if they block bile flow. Cholecystitis, often caused by gallstones, leads to gallbladder inflammation and severe abdominal pain. Bile duct obstruction can result from various causes, such as tumors or strictures, leading to jaundice and liver damage. Treatment varies from managing symptoms with medications to surgical removal of the gallbladder (cholecystectomy) in severe cases.
