Cholecystitis is a painful sensation in the gallbladder. It is the most common pain mainly in the upper abdominal area, caused by gallstones. In many cases, gallstones block the tube that leads out of the gallbladder leading to cholecystitis, which results in a bile buildup that can cause inflammation. Other reasons include bile duct problems and tumours. One of the most common disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, which is affecting about 10% of people in western society, is cholecystitis. More than 80% of people with gallstones are asymptomatic.
