What is gall bladder stone?

The gallbladder is a little pouch and is located under your liver. It stores bile that is secreted from the liver. Usually, the gallbladder doesn't cause many problems but if something hinders or impedes the flow of bile from the gallbladder, problems may occur, such as gallstones. Apart from weight shift (too much fat accumulation), genetic traces, diet can be a cause of gallbladder stone.
