About Cholangiocarcinoma

Cholangiocarcinoma is a cancer of the bile ducts, which drain bile from the liver into the small intestine. With an annual incidence rate of one to two cases per 100,000 in the Western world, this disease has been steadily increasing over the past several decades. Risk factors include inflammation of the bile ducts and liver malfunctions. Symptoms include jaundice, weight loss and generalized itching. This disease is diagnosed through a combination of blood tests, imaging, endoscopy and sometimes surgical exploration. To date, surgery is the only potentially curative treatment.
