Gallstones / Choledicholithiatis
Gallstones, also called cholelithiasis are the most frequently occurring disease that affects your gallbladders. Under certain conditions, like high cholesterol or chronic liver disease, the bile can build up too much cholesterol or too much blood pigment. When this happens, they can turn into small stone-like material. They can range in size from a grain of sand to a golf ball. The
bladder can make one large stone, hundreds of tiny stones, or both small and large
stones. Gallstones are often harmless and asymptomatic but can also pose severe problems.
