Bile Duct Cancer (Cholangiocarcinoma)

Bile duct cancer, also known as cholangiocarcinoma, is a rare form of cancer that begins in the bile ducts, the long, thin tube-like structures that carry bile from the liver to the intestine.

At Penn Medicine's Abramson Cancer Center, patients with bile duct cancer receive their care from a team of nationally recognized experts in the diagnosis, treatment and research of gastrointestinal cancer.

Our approach to cancer diagnosis and treatment provides better outcomes and gives you access to the most advanced treatment, surgical techniques and clinical trials. Our physicians within our Gastrointestinal Cancer Program, work together to create personalized treatment plans tailored to the unique needs of every patient with bile duct cancer.
