Polyps in the gallbladder: timely detection - the path to a speedy recovery
If we are talking about polyps, then a similar phenomenonassociated with benign mucosal formations. Such neoplasms can progress in any organ that has a mucous membrane, so this pathology is especially appropriate for the stomach, intestines, uterus, bladder. Let us dwell in more detail on such a pathological process as polyps in the gallbladder.
If one judges the reasons for such an anomaly, then theyup to the end yet are not revealed, however, the most part of scientists is clearly convinced that such growths are connected with genetic changes, hormonal imbalance, and also with domination of virus carriers.
In medicine there are several kinds of similar"Tumors" in the gallbladder, each of them has a specific clinical picture with characteristic symptoms. So, the cholesteric polyp characterizes the growth of the mucous membrane with cholesterol stagnation, the inflammatory diagnoses the effect of the inflammatory reaction of the mucosa, the adenoma "sprouts" directly from the glandular tissue, well, the papilloma is a lumpy tumor on the mucous membrane.
On the vital activity polyps in a biliousa bubble is not terrible for health, the threat is observed only with their mutation, that is, they are able to develop into malignant tumors with fatal health consequences. When should there be reasons for the excitement of a potential patient? Often the patient does not have suspicions of the disease "polyps in the gallbladder", the symptoms of which are mostly "sleeping" in nature, that is, the complete absence of characteristic complaints. Although sometimes polyps in the gallbladder are accompanied by a palpable discomfort in the upper abdomen, which is associated with abnormal liver function, which can negatively affect certain foods. However, it should be fairly noted that the absence of symptoms is directly related to the extent of the onset and the nature of the disease, since alarm signals are seen already at later terms of pathology.
Determine the presence of pathology, as well as give ita detailed description can only be made by an expert on a previously conducted ultrasound of the diseased organ. But if the diagnosis of "polyps in the gallbladder" is diagnosed, treatment should be immediate. Here it is important to clarify that these "nodes" of some kind require exclusively surgical intervention and systematic observation, there is no other method for their elimination. Growing neoplasms should be removed immediately, as they can mutate into malignant neoplasms. Either way, polyps in the gallbladder require constant monitoring by a specialist and detailed diagnosis, since when reaching a size of more than 10 mm, they should be removed, and then continue the ultrasound control of the gallbladder.
Today, an operation to remove progressivePolyps are not life threatening, although the right approach is important here. On the one hand, it is possible, by removing the pathogenic focus, to preserve all the natural functions of the gallbladder. However, such a surgical intervention (endoscopic polypectomy) is not fully understood by modern medicine, therefore it is necessary to use this method with increased vigilance. On the other hand most physicians prefer to remove the gallbladder with all its neoplasms (laparoscopic cholecystectomy).
Summing up, we can say that a similar pathologyis not life-threatening and does not cause significant harm to the patient's health only if it is detected and treated in a timely manner, in other cases such an anomaly is fraught with fatal consequences.
