Most gallbladder polyps are benign. The only treatment is removal of the gallbladder, and treatment is dependent on the size of the polyp. Polyps between 5-10mm should be followed closely with repeat ultrasounds every 3 months. Polyps larger than 10mm should be removed to ensure there is no cancer.
Regarding the pancreas, chronic pancreatitis can lead to this - possibly by chronic alcohol ingestion. You may want to consider a CT scan as well as pancreatic enzymes for further evaluation.
I would consider a referral to a GI specialist if you aren't seeing one already.
Followup with your personal physician is essential.

Regarding my prior question and the posted answer, in light of the Hepatitis C diagnosis after a transfusion many years ago, I have not used alcohol for over 30 years and I wondered if anyone else with the Hepatitis C diagnosis has experienced gallbladder polyps and fatty pancreas after long-term Hep C.
I have Chronic Pancreatitis and SOd and did NOT get pancreatitis from alcohol. I belong to a board where another member is researching the possibility of thelink between Hep C and pancreatitis. You should check it out. You may find something useful there. It is a yahoo board group so I think you have to join to post. But I think it will be of benefit to you. http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/pancreatitis/
