What Is Extrahepatic Bile Duct Cancer?

Winning the battle against a life-threatening disease begins with being armed with essential information.

Extrahepatic bile duct cancer forms in the tube-like structure (duct) outside the liver. A bile duct is responsible for carrying an essential fluid (bile) between the liver, gallbladder, and small intestine. Cancer that occurs in the area where the left and right bile ducts join outside the liver is called Klatskin tumor, which is the most common type of bile duct cancer.

Extrahepatic Bile Duct Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

There are three types of extrahepatic bile duct cancer:

Adenocarcinoma
Adenocarcinoma or cholangiocarcinoma accounts for 95 percent of all bile duct cancers. It starts in the cells of the mucous gland, also known as muciparous glands, lining the inside of the bile duct.

Perihilar bile duct cancer
Also called Klatskin tumors, this type of bile duct cancer begins where hepatic duct branches leave the liver. About two-thirds of bile duct cancer cases are perihilar or hilar cholangiocarcinoma.

Distal bile duct cancer
This malignant disease occurs at the opposite end of the bile duct from perihilar cancer, near the small intestine. About one-fourth of all bile duct cancers originate at this location.

Extrahepatic Bile Duct Cancer Symptoms

Some general signs of extrahepatic bile duct cancer include:

  • Yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes (jaundice)
  • An increasing sensation of itchy skin
  • Clay-colored or pale gray stool
  • Abdominal pain
  • Unexplainable fatigue
  • Unintended weight loss

If you notice changes in the way your body functions or the way you feel — especially if your condition worsens — see a doctor as soon as possible.

Extrahepatic Bile Duct Cancer Causes

Research about the possible causes of extrahepatic bile duct cancer is ongoing. Factors that increase a man or woman’s risk include the following disorders:

  • Choledochal Cysts
  • Chronic ulcerative colitis
  • Primary sclerosing cholangitis
  • Infection with a Chinese liver fluke parasite

If you have risk factors, discuss them and prevention with your physician.

Extrahepatic Bile Duct Cancer Diagnosis

Early detection is key to improving your extrahepatic bile duct cancer prognosis and life expectancy. Your doctor may order the following tests to determine whether you:

  • Medical history and physical exam
  • Blood tests of liver and gallbladder function
  • Imaging scans, such as
    • Abdominal ultrasound
    • Endoscopic or laparoscopic ultrasound
    • Computerized tomography (CT) scan
    • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
    • Cholangiography
    • Angiography
  • Biopsy
