Cancer of the Gallbladder and Bile Duct

Cancer of the Gallbladder and Bile Duct
Cancer of the gallbladder is a malignant tumor arising from the gallbladder. Carcinoma of the bile duct is a malignant tumor of the bile ducts that may occur within or outside the liver. Carcinoma of the gallbladder occurs more frequently compared to the bile duct cancer. Survival rate is poor since most patients are diagnosed at a late stage in the disease. Incidentally discovered gallbladder cancers during routine cholecystectomy for stones may carry better prognosis, if the disease is early. Both these tumours are generally locally aggressive and spread to distant sites only in late stages.
