Gallbladder Cancer: Symptoms
What are the symptoms of gallbladder cancer?
The symptoms of gallbladder cancer usually don’t occur until the tumor is big or the cancer has spread. The symptoms of gallbladder cancer may include:
Pain or discomfort in the right side of the upper abdomen (belly)
Lumps in the abdomen
A sense of fullness after eating even small amounts
Nausea and vomiting
Loss of weight without trying
Yellowing of the skin or the white part of the eyes (jaundice)
When to see your healthcare provider
Many of these symptoms can also be caused by other health problems. Some of these symptoms are like those due to gallstones or gallbladder inflammation. But it is important to see your healthcare provider if you have these symptoms. Only a healthcare provider can tell if you have cancer.
