Bile Duct Cancer

Bile ducts are located near the major blood vessels that feed the liver, making the surgical removal of tumors quite challenging. It is essential to seek out a specialized cancer center for such complex surgery. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with bile duct cancer, or you suspect you may have the disease, contact the specialists here at City of Hope.
