Last few decades have seen changes in the approach toward the management of gallbladder cancer (GBCA). Availability of high-definition imaging modalities and accurate interpretations of their findings have helped in early and accurate diagnosis. A structured approach toward the disease with the aid of clinical, noninterventional/interventional radiology and laparoscopic findings has helped surgeons to choose between an aggressive approach of radical cholecystectomy for those with a resectable growth and suitable palliation for those who are unlikely to benefit from therapeutic laparotomy, thereby helping in proper and judicious utilization of health-care resources. Better understanding of the tumor biology is encouraging oncologists for trials with different targeted therapies in advanced disease. This review addresses some of the key issues related to the management of GBCA based on extensive search of available literatures and current international guidelines.
