Gall Bladder

Gall Bladder The most common cause of a gall bladder attack or inflammation of the gall bladder is a gallstone blocking one of the ducts where bile leaves the gall bladder. This blockage results in irritation and the gall bladder may become swollen. Physical injury in an accident or occasionally an infection can result in this inflammation.

The gallbladder itself is under the liver and is located on the front right side just below the rib cage. The liver, gall bladder and pancreas help in the digestive process by producing and storing bile and digestive enzymes. Bile assists in digesting fats and high cholesterol foods. It is produced in the liver and stored in the gallbladder from where it is injected into the small intestines through the common bile duct as needed.

Symptoms of an inflamed gall bladder may include nausea, vomiting, or pain in the right side of the abdomen, back, or just under the arm.
