Gallstones

Gallstones are formed in the gall bladder when the cholesterol or the bilirubin in bile (which is stored in the gall bladder) harden into stone-like crystals. When the stones reach become bigger than about 8 mm, the person will often have intense pain in the stomach and jaundice. The condition is life-threatening if it is not treated.
