Every person with gall stones should have gall bladder removed

Is it a Myth or a Fact? Find out below

Gall stones are a very common condition and usually do not cause problems. The management of gall stones that are not causing symptoms is "to do nothing". People who may not have access to adequate health care for prolonged periods e.g. sailors and missionaries may be an exception. It used to be thought that patients with diabetes should have prophylactic cholecystectomy (gall bladder removal). Such is no longer the case. Is there a risk of cancer of gall bladder if gall bladder is allowed to remain? Although the risk is always there, it is so small that the risks of surgery outweigh the benefits. An exception to this rule would be if the gallbladder is calcified.
