Gallstones are small or large stones that form in the gallbladder that can sometimes travel outside the gallbladder. They vary in size and can be as small as a grain of sand or as big as a golf ball. Often times, gallstones are small enough to be passed without symptoms, but it is important to know the causes and signs before potentially serious issues arise.
