What Is Bile Duct Cancer?

Bile duct cancer, also known as cholangiocarcinoma, occurs when the cells present in the bile duct undergo massive multiplication and lead to the formation of lumps or tumours. The bile ducts are responsible for carrying the fluid bile that aids in digestion. The bile duct connects the liver to both the small intestine and the gallbladder. It usually occurs in people aged above 50 years and is of various types depending on the area of origin of the cancer cells.

The herbal treatments will include the use of the best ayurvedic medicines for cancer aimed at improving the quality of your life. Use of therapeutic measures allows for a holistic recovery and treatment approach.

What Causes Bile Duct Cancer?

  • The primary reason remains to be mutations in the DNA of the cell that lead to multiplication. The growth becomes uncontrollable and forms lumps or masses in the body. These cells hold the potential to attack and kill normal healthy cells.
  • If an individual is born with some bile duct-related defects like a choledochal cyst, the chances of developing cholangiocarcinoma are increased. Also, chronic liver disease contributes to the reasons.
  • Primary sclerosing cholangitis is a condition that hardens and scars the bile duct, raising the risk of bile duct cancer. In addition, liver fluke infection has been linked to the onset of cancer.
  • Aside from genetic abnormalities, smoking, ageing, and diabetes (type 1 or type 2), there are other risk factors for bile duct cancer.

Types of Bile Duct Cancer

Depending on the area of origin of the cancer cells, they have been divided into three types:

  • Intrahepatic bile duct cancer

    The bile duct has been divided into numerous small ducts that join inside the liver to form the right and left hepatic ducts. The cancer cells start forming in the liver itself.

  • Distal extrahepatic bile duct cancer

    The tumour cells begin forming in the perihilar region near the bowel.

  • Perihilar bile duct cancer

    In this case, the cancer cells develop outside the liver, where the right and left hepatic ducts join. These are also known as hilar cancer or klatskin tumors.

    Based on the types of cells that the tumor begins in, it can be squamous cell carcinoma, lymphoma, and sarcoma.
