Treatment for Cholangiocarcinoma 

The extent of a bile duct cancer is an important factor in determining treatment options.Treatment of cholangiocarcinoma will depend on the position and size of the cancer and whether it has spread beyond the bile duct. Such factors as the age and general health of the patient will also be considered in determining whether surgery is an option.In many cases, a team of doctors will work with the patient to determine the best treatment plan.Surgical removal of tumors is the only treatment option that offers the potential for a cure. Not all cholangiocarcinoma can be treated with surgery so doctors generally categorize bile duct cancer as resectable and un-resectable.
