Gallbladder is a pocket that stores bile.Gallstone disease (GSD) has, for many years, remained a high-cost, socially significant public health problem. Gallstones are a major cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the world.Gallstones are known to produce diverse histopathological changes in the gallbladder.They vary in size and shape from as small as a grain of sand to as large as a golf ball. The presence of gallstones do not produce any kind of symptoms in most of the cases. The abdominal pain can be due to acid reflux. Gallstones are different from kidney stones. Drinking more water or liquids to flush out small kidney stones definitely works. There is no medical evidence that says that consuming more liquids or milk can get rid of gallstones or dissolve them away.Once removed, gallstones are not going to come back If the gallstones get into the bile duct obstructing the flow of bile juice, an endoscope is used to remove them. This doesn't mean that the stones are gone forever and are not going to come back. The stones may start forming again just like the kidney stones that recur. It is tricky that Gallstones cause gallbladder cancer. Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is now the gold standard for treatment of symptomatic gallstones
