Chole­cys­ti­tis is an in­flam­ma­tion of the gall­blad­der, an or­gan that helps break down fat. It usu­ally oc­curs when a gall­stone blocks the cys­tic duct. Symp­toms in­clude a sud­den pain in the up­per right-hand side of the ab­domen, high tem­per­a­ture, vom­it­ing, sweat­ing, and yel­low­ing of the skin. Ini­tial treat­ment in­cludes di­etary changes, but in some cases, the gall­blad­der needs to be re­moved. For more info, go to www.nhs.uk.
