Core Tip Early stage gallbladder cancers can often be detected as polyps in imaging studies. The aim of this study was to determine the factors affecting surgery by analyzing the incidence of malignancy of gallbladder polyps (GP) and the efficiency of ultrasonography in detecting GP. Of 138 patients with GP on imaging, 99 had polyps and 21 had histopathologically confirmed adenocarc?noma. Of these 21 patients, all malignant polyps were solitary and had a diameter > 10 mm. In our study, the risk of malignancy correlated w?th age over 50 years old, solitary polyp and polyp diameter > 10 mm.
