Topic: Dad just diagnosed at age 67
Hi everyone. I just found this site and I think it's a great way to get information and support so I'm happy to be a part of it. My dad has a small blockage in the bile duct close to his liver and a small lesion in his liver. He feels well though. He actually went to the doctor for what he thought was acid reflux. They suspect cholangiocarcinoma. He will be getting a fine needle biopsy and then we will need to find a surgeon in the NY/NJ area. If anyone has any advice or surgeon suggestions, i'd really appreciate it.
Does anyone know if the prognosis is good if the lesion in the duct and the liver are small? I am just learning about this disease.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
