Biliary cancer is also known as bile duct cancer.

This is when a malignant growth carries bile from the liver to the small intestine. It is rare, and most prevalent in people aged 50 to 70. 

The tumour sometimes blocks the bile ducts, which can cause jaundice, clay-coloured stools, itching, loss of appetite, weight loss, fever, chills, or abdominal and back pain. These tumours usually grow slowly and spread gradually. In many cases, bile duct cancer is diagnosed in the advanced stages.

We also treat pancreatic cancer. Cancer of the pancreas is a very serious form of cancer, which is both difficult to detect and to treat.

If your pancreatic cancer cannot be cured, our specialist team at the Sheila Sherlock Liver Centre can provide a range of pancreatic cancer treatments which can help to slow the growth of the tumour, as well as ease any symptoms you may be experiencing.
