Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Gallstones that don't cause signs and symptoms, such as those detected during an ultrasound or CT scan done for some other condition, typically don't require treatment.

Treatment for gallstones that cause signs and symptoms 

Surgery to remove the gallbladder (cholecystectomy).Your doctor may recommend surgery to remove your gallbladder, since gallstones frequently recur.

Medications to dissolve gallstones. Medications you take by mouth may help dissolve gallstones.

Here are some resources for you
