The gallbladder is a small organ located directly under the liver. It acts as a bile reservoir; it concentrates bile, which is secreted by the liver and is used by the body to digest fats. Bile contains cholesterol, bile salts, lecithin, and other substances.
Sometimes cholesterol crystallizes and forms gallstones. Ofthen persons with gallstones have no symptoms. If a stone blocks the bile passage nausea, vomiting, and pain in the upper right abdominal region occur. These symptoms often arise after the individual has eaten fried or fatty foods.
