If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with cancer of the bile duct, we can provide the information you need, from understanding the cancer itself, to choosing the right treatment, to finding support.
Cancer of the bile duct can also be called bile duct cancer.
When cancer develops in your bile ducts, the cells change and grow in an abnormal way. As the cancer grows, it forms a collection of cells know as a tumour. This tumour can cause a blockage and cause symptoms like jaundice.
Cancer of the bile duct is a very rare type of cancer.
For booklets and factsheets, including information about cancer types, treatments, side-effects, emotional effects, financial information and more. Visit our publications section.
