Gallbladder cancer is a rare but highly malignant tumour with poor prognosis. It has marked ethnic and geographical variations. In India, it is most prevalent in northern and north-eastern population. It is twice more common in women than in men and is the commonest digestive cancer in women in northern India. The incidence of incidentally diagnosed gallbladder cancer (GBC picked up on histopathological examination only) has increased because of increasing number of patients undergoing cholecystectomy. All post cholecystectomy gallbladder specimens should be opened and examined carefully by the operating surgeon and be sent for histopathological examination.
