Hi there,
A gallstone polyp is usually a benign condition. It can occur in association with cholesterolosis. It can be associated with biliary pain. The size of the polyp usually is a predictive feature for malignancy. Polyps smaller than 5 mm are usually benign and asymptomatic patients do not need treatment. You may need repeat follow up with an ultrasound in 6 and 12 months. Do clarify your doubts with your doctor. Keep me posted on how you are doing.
Best wishes and kind regards!
