Cancer types

Bile duct cancer

Bile ducts are tubes which connect the liver and the gall bladder to the small intestine. The tubes are used to transfer bile which is used in the small intestine to break down fat in food that has been eaten. Cancers of the bile duct are also known as cholangiocarcinomas. The following links will help you to find out more about cancer of the bile duct and the support that is available for anyone affected. 

If you have been affected by cancer in some way and would like to talk to someone about what you have read or need help finding information - you are welcome to drop into any Maggie’s Centre or to visit Maggie’s Online Centre and talk with a cancer support specialist.
