Gallbladder Carcinoma

 

Gallbladder carcinoma is a disease where cells grow abnormally in the tissues of gallbladder. The gallbladder is shaped like a pear and is located under the liver in the upper area of abdomen. The gallbladder is responsible of storing bile, a fluid produced by liver for digesting fat. The bile is released from the gallbladder when the food is broken down in the stomach and intestines. The bile travels through a tube known as the common bile duct. It connects the gallbladder and liver to the starting point of small intestine. There are three walls in the gallbladder mucosal, muscularis and serosal layer. There is a connective tissue between these layers and the gallbladder cancer starts within the innermost layer and spreads in the outer layer.
