Gallbladder Cancer

The gallbladder is a small organ to the right of the liver, behind the lower ribs. The gallbladder stores bile, which helps with digestion. Most cancers in the gallbladder are adenocarcinomas, which means they begin in the cells of the glands. One type of adenocarcinoma of the gallbladder, called papillary adenocarcinoma, looks a bit like fingers under a microscope and is not likely to grow into the liver, lymph nodes or other tissues.
