I recently had an ultrasound as a result of bloating and belching (lol) and headaches. The scan showed I have two gallstones and what appears to be a tumor or a very large polyp at 2cm. I could see it on the scan and it filled up one end of my gallbladder and unlike the stones it did not move around and stayed flat.
I am concerned that my Specialist Dr is not taking it seriously. She keeps saying it's not cancer that I am too young to have this sort of cancer and it's incredibly rare and so she seems to be taking her time. She got me to have a second ultrasound done which showed no change. Now she wants me to get an MRI done. I really just would like to know from anyone here who has gone through the process of finding out if they have gallbladder cancer as to which test is the right one to do? i.e. what did you have to go through before diagnosis?
Is my specialist doing the right thing by me in ordering an MRI before doing anything else? I am not sure what the next step is - I think removal of the gallbladder.
FYI I am insanely tired and sleeping 15 hours a day. So I feel like I can't battle these Dr's who are very like I say nonchalent about this mass on my gallbladder. I'm 29 years old with 3 children so I feel they should be acting faster etc - it's been nearly a month since it was first found - just want them to take the damn gallbladder out of me!!
