What is Gallstones?

Gallstones are hard deposits that are formed within the gallbladder due to continuous accumulation of bile components. While they are formed inside the gallbladder, they could pass through the other tracts in the system. This distal passing of the gallstones into the systems could typically affect the cystic duct, the bile tract and the pancreas. Their size depends on the amount of accumulation and the time for which it has been left untreated.
