Gallstones are a collection of normal or abnormal bile constituents in the gall bladder which cause excruciating pain.
Causes and Symptoms of Gallstones
Cholesterol, which is a lipid processed from the intake of fats present in the food, is a water-insoluble substance. The addition of bile, which is produced by the liver and stored in the gall bladder, enters the intestine via the bile duct and interacts with the cholesterol to make it soluble. If this cholesterol does not dissolve, it gets precipitated and is deposited in the gall bladder as concretions of cholesterol, bile pigments, calcium and other constituents. These are gallstones, which are stones of different types, depending on their composition.
Gallstones may be single or multiple. They cause pain when they either block the bile duct, or are so many that they stretch the gall bladder wall.
