El tratamiento y control de los cálculo biliares implica el adoptar un enfoque de esperar y ver, utilizar medicamentos, cirugía y otros tratamientos según lo decida su médico. La excepción a este enfoque es cualquiera que tenga cálculos biliares grandes (de más de 3 centímetros), que tengan pólipos en la vesícula biliar o un alto riesgo de cáncer en la vesícula biliar .

A menos que su vesícula biliar sea removida quirúrgicamente, los cálculos biliares pueden reaparecer.
