A very commonly occurring form of cancer is Gallbladder Cancer that happens in the gall area. This malignant growth has earlier symptoms like jaundice, fever, trouble digesting food, yellowness and paleness of the skin along with swelling in the abdomen. In most cases, the patient would have these symptoms on a recurring basis.
HOW IS GALLBLADDER CANCER DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis for Gallbladder cancer is more like screening for the cancer symptoms. An endoscopic ultrasound might be one of the diagnostic tests recommended by the Oncologist or even the General Physician before the confirmation is made. If it is in advanced stage with all the attendant symptoms as above, then it becomes easier to detect. The fact that this part is tucked inside makes it tougher for the doctors to tell early enough.
HOW IS GALLBLADDER CANCER TREATED?
Surgery is the most preferred treatment for Gallbladder Cancer. But the exact stage of the disease is very important for the surgeon to plan the surgery. Again the most frequently adopted procedure is cholecystectomy, which is the removal of the gallbladder itself. After this, radiotherapy will also be needed to ensure that any leftover cancerous tissues are removed.
