Bile Duct Cancer
Bile duct cancer also known as Cholangiocarcinoma, is a rare disease in which cancer cells form in the part of bile duct that is 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. 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 inpatient cancer care program, delivered by a multidisciplinary team with sub-specialty training and distinguished clinical expertise in treating complex and rare subtypes of cancer.
