Dear Anonymous,

What makes you think you have Gallbladder issues?

Gallbladder cancer often shows no symptoms in its early stages. As the disease progresses, symptoms associated with bile obstruction often develop. These include:

Abdominal pain
Pain in the upper back (called referred pain)
Jaundice (yellowing of the “whites” of the eyes, the skin, under the tongue)
Other symptoms may include:

Nausea and/or vomiting
Loss of appetite
Weight loss
Liver and spleen enlargement
Increased abdominal girth

Since you mention phlegm in your throat, do you have any other symptoms? Any signs of reflux?

Here's some more information on Gallbladder Cancer: http://www.empowher.com/condition/gallbladder-cancer

Based on your random bouts of nausea/vomiting-- It sounds like a good idea to see your doctor and determine what's causing these symptoms.

Best of luck,
