gallbladder wall thickening

I haven't felt well for about a year and recently went to a large clinic for review. They sent me a long packet after I returned and had reviewed slides that I had brought with me from my hometown. One of their notes said that my gallbladder wall thickness was 3.1 mm which is just above normal. I have a family history of cancer in the gastro intestinal tract and I am wondering how to proceed. What can cause thickening of the gallbladder wall?
