Gallstones are hardened deposits of digestive fluid that can form in your gallbladder. Gallstones range in size from as small as a grain of sand to as large as a golf ball. Some people develop just one gallstone, while others develop many gallstones at the same time.

Slide4:

Causes of Gallstones The stones form when the amount of cholesterol or bilirubin in the bile is high. Other substances in the bile may promote the formation of stones. Pigment stones form most often in people with liver disease or blood disease, who have high levels of bilirubin. Poor muscle tone may keep the gallbladder from emptying completely. The presence of residual bile may promote the formation of gallstones.
