Benign diseases of the gallbladder and pancreas represent significant causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, particularly in elderly patients. Additionally, asymptomatic benign lesions of the gallbladder and pancreas are diagnosed more frequently with the increased use of imaging, and require thoughtful consideration for appropriate and timely treatment or follow-up. A critical understanding of these diseases is mandatory for proper patient care in the geriatric population.
