The most appropriate approach to this patient is a cholecystectomy, which should be done prophylactically for gallbladder polyps greater than 10 mm in size. Further imaging via ultrasound, cholangiopancreatography, or MRI are not necessary with the size of this polyp and would not change the management. Almost one-half of all gallbladder polyps are cholesterol polyps.
