Question
Dear OncoLink "Ask the Experts,"
I am trying to learn more about a diagnosis of cholangiocarcinoma. Can you suggest any readings or centers that might specialize in this area.  
Thank you
S.P.


Answer
Maggie Hampshire RN, BSN, OCN, Managing Editor of OncoLink replies:

We are sorry that your first search was inconclusive. Cholangiocarcinoma is a type of liver cancer that involves cells from the intrahepatic bileducts.

For more information on cholangiocarcinoma perhaps you could try OncoLink's Cancer Types Section. There you can find the NCI/PDQ® Physician Statement: Adult primary liver cancer

Thank you for your interest in OncoLink.
