Bile Duct Cancer
Bile duct cancer, also known as cholangiocarcinoma, is a rare cancer that develops in the cells of the bile ducts, which are tubes that carry bile from the liver to the small intestine. The exact causes of bile duct cancer are unknown, but some potential risk factors include chronic inflammation of the bile ducts, liver disease, a history of bile duct or liver surgery, and exposure to certain chemicals or parasites. Symptoms of bile duct cancer may include jaundice, abdominal pain, itching, and unexplained weight loss. Diagnosis typically involves imaging tests, blood tests, and biopsy, and treatment may involve surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of these approaches depending on the stage and location of the cancer.
