Gallbladder Cancer

Gallbladder cancer is a type of cancer that forms in the cells of the gallbladder, the pear-shaped organ in the upper right abdomen below the liver.

Frequent indicators of gallbladder cancer include yellowing of the skin and eyes, abdominal pain and cramping, nausea, vomiting, bloating, a lump in the abdomen, and itchy skin.

Doctors in the GW Cancer Center’s Gastrointestinal Cancer Program may treat gallbladder cancer using a combination of immunotherapy, minimally invasive robotic surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, depending on the patient’s needs.
