Re: Trousseau sign of malignancy (blood clots)

Marion,

Thanks for posting this.  It is very interesting and important to know.  I do remember that when Jim started to get blood clots and the thinners weren't helping to prevent them is when they started to look at cancer as the cause. I didn't really understand it then and am not sure if I do even now, but knowing that it could be a sign of cancer is important in diagnoising CC and other cancers that like to hide &  lurk in the body.  This is the first information I have seen on the subject.

I searched Trousseau's Syndrome Cholangiocarcinoma and found this:

There were also other sites with similar info.  All very interesting.
