Topic: Emedicine - Overview of bile duct tumours

Hi all,

Found this today and thought it worth posting. It is a 5 page overview of bile duct tumours and covers a lot of information. It covers topics such as staging, scans, treatment and complications.

Thought it worth a read, especially for newcomers to the board.

Best wishes,

Gavin

My Mom lost her one year battle with CC on April 3, 2009.

"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is.  Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.

Hi Pam and Marion,

Glad the article was of use. I won't be able to attend the web conference Marion so will it be put onto the website at some point so that those of us who can't attend can watch it later?

Best wishes to you both,

Gavin
