How long does it take for gallstones to develop

I have been having a mild pain in my upper right abdominal for over a week now. I have no other symptoms. I had an ultrasound a little over a year ago and no gallstones where found. Could gallstones grow and causes problems in just over a year?

Thanks

You don't need gallstones to have gallbladder pain. If your symptoms are typical for gallbladder disease (as they are), and an upper endoscopy is negative, functional testing of the gallbladder may well give an answer.
