Bile Duct Cancer
Bile duct cancer also known as Cholangiocarcinoma, is a rare disease in which cancer cells originate from the bile duct within or outside the liver. The bile duct primarily moves bile -- which the body uses to digest food -- from the liver to the small intestine and gall bladder. Request an appointment or contact us at 734-647-8902.
Bile Duct Cancer (Cholangiocarcinoma) is treated in the Multidisciplinary Liver Tumor Clinic at the University of Michigan. Our clinic has been named a Blue Distinction Center for Complex and Rare Cancers as part of a national program by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. That means we offer a comprehensive outpatient cancer care program, delivered by a multidisciplinary team with sub-specialty training and distinguished clinical expertise in treating complex and rare subtypes of cancer.
