Gallbladder cancer is cancer that begins in the gallbladder. Gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ on the right side of your abdomen, just beneath your liver. The gallbladder stores bile, a digestive fluid produced by your liver.
Gallbladder cancer is uncommon. When gallbladder cancer is discovered at its earliest stages, the chance for a cure is very good. But most gallbladder cancers are discovered at a late stage, when the prognosis is often very poor.
Gallbladder cancer is difficult to diagnose because it often causes no specific signs or symptoms. Also, the relatively hidden nature of the gallbladder makes it easier for gallbladder cancer to grow without being detected.
Dharamshila Hospital offers a comprehensive program to diagnose and treat people with Gall Bladder cancer. At DHRC, a multidisciplinary team works together to diagnose and treat people with gall bladder cancer and provide the high-quality, integrated care.
A team of Surgical Oncologists, Radiation oncologists, Medical oncologists and other medical specialties work together to treat each gall bladder cancer patient. They consider each patient′s type and extent of gall bladder cancers to recommend the most appropriate treatment plan. They also carefully consider and select the treatment option that will allow the patient to maintain improved quality of life with good survival rate.
