The gallbladder is a pear-shaped, four-inch organ. It's in the upper-right region of the abdomen, under the liver. Bile, a mixture of fluids, fat, and cholesterol, is stored in the gallbladder. In the intestine, bile aids in the breakdown of fat from diet. Bile is delivered into the small intestine by the gallbladder. This facilitates the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins and minerals into the bloodstream. Inflammation, infection, stones, and gallbladder blockage are all symptoms of gallbladder disease. Intermittent discomfort, often known as biliary colic, is the mildest and most prevalent sign of gallbladder disease. A continuous gripping or gnawing pain in the upper right abdomen near the rib cage, which can be severe and spread to the upper back, is the most common symptom.
