The gallbladder: a small organ that can cause big pain

Gallstones may cause the gallbladder wall to become irritated. They may also block the outlet of the gallbladder and start an infection. Patients with this problem may have pain under the right rib cage, fever, nausea and vomiting. If untreated, the gallbladder can develop gangrene, or infection can spread. Surgery to remove the gallbladder is the best treatment.
