It is important to note that many of these symptoms are very common and can be caused by many different conditions. Having them does not definitely mean you have bile duct cancer. But it’s important to get them checked by a GP. This is because if they’re caused by cancer, finding it earlier makes it more treatable.
When going to a GP appointment, there you may have a blood test or be referred to a specialist in hospital for more tests if the doctor thinks the condition is worth investigating further.
Tests such as an ultrasound scan, CT scan or MRI scan can help find problems in other nearby organs, such as your pancreas, gallbladder or liver.
If diagnosed with bile duct cancer, treatment will be recommended based on the individual case. Often, bile duct cancer is treatable, but the process can be difficult.
