Most of gallbladder tumors are benign and asymptomatic. These tumors are characterized by an elevation of the gallbladder wall that project into the lumen. Polyps are the most common benign tumors of the gallbladder with a prevalence estimated between 4 to 7 %. Gallbladder adenomas are commonly detected on ultrasound and distinguished from cholesterol pseudopolyps and focal adenomyomatosis. Cholecystectomy should be performed if gallbladder polyp is greater than 10mm, in patients with risk factors for gallbladder malignancy or fast growing polyp.
