Gallbladder cancer is a relatively rare cancer when compared to other cancer types, but it’s better to be prepared by keeping informed about the risks and symptoms, which gives an upper hand in treatment. The disease occurs in the stomach around the gall bladder area due to chronic inflammation.
Symptoms of gallbladder cancer are hard to detect, but these signs give an elaborate idea to the oncologist about the occurrence of the disease:
1) Pain in Abdominal(stomach) area
3) Chronic Jaundice
4) Formation of Lumps in belly
5) Belly Swelling
6) Loss of Appetite
7) Fever and Itchy Skin
8) Dark urine (in case it has spread to liver)
These signs and symptoms help a doctor to make a better diagnosis about the disease, which is the second step of cancer treatment. This is done by examining a patient using a variety of medical techniques, which include imaging tests, CT scan, Ultra scan, Blood tests, MRI, and in some cases the doctor suggests a patient undergoes biopsy for better diagnosis.
After the state of the disease (stage, size, spread) has been detected, it’s important to know about different available treatments, one out of which you choose for recovery. It’s vital to be aware of the effectiveness and risks of different treatments for gallbladder.
