Silent Gallstones

Most people who have gallstones don't know they have them.

Gallstones affect at least 10% of the United States population. One million new cases of gallstones are diagnosed each year. However, most cases of gallstones remain undiagnosed because they never cause symptoms. TheseĀ  "silent" stones require no treatment.
