Gallbladder Cancer: Symptoms 

What are the symptoms of gallbladder cancer?

The symptoms of gallbladder cancer often don't start until the tumor is big or the cancer has spread. Common symptoms of gallbladder cancer include: 

  • Pain or discomfort in the right side of the upper abdomen (belly)

  • Lumps in the abdomen

  • A sense of fullness after eating even small amounts

  • Nausea and vomiting

  • Poor appetite

  • Loss of weight without trying

  • Fever

  • Yellowing of the skin or the white part of the eyes (jaundice) 

  • Severe itching

When to see your healthcare provider

Many of these symptoms are also caused by other health problems. Some are a lot like the symptoms caused by gallstones or gallbladder inflammation. But it's important to see a healthcare provider if you have these symptoms. Only a healthcare provider can tell if you have cancer.
