Gallbladder polyp
Hi Dr. I have a gallbladder polyp. I have undergone a endoscopic ultrasonography examination. The size detected is 13mm and it's asymptomatic. I dont feel any problem. What will be your advice? Should I wait and monitor the size periodically or go for surgery? Thanks in advance

Nothing to be done other than yearly USG. Action only if the total volume of polyps gets more than 5 cme
