Hi, It is very informative and easy to understand for extrahepatic CCA patients. God bless.
Please know that my personal opinion is not intended nor implied to be a substitute for professional medical advice. If provided, information are for educational purposes.Consult doctor is a MUST for changing of treatment plans.
Percy...thanks for clarifying the issue of extrahepatic only. The other interesting point this article makes, is the insurance companie's refusal of payment. Interestingly enough; it is covered under Medicare and yet it takes an independent committee from the state to review and force payment.
I also disagree with the rate of occurrence. I believe that it is much higher than 3 thousand cases, annually, in the US.

Interesting article. Thank you for posting. Marion: I agree with you. I think this is, unfortunately, a cancer who's occurrence is becoming much too common. I believe 3,000 was probably a good number for last year. And Randi: Good one! I haven't eaten deli sandwiches except for BLT's, in years!! But maybe some deli should give Ruben a cousin??

I learned many things through the post above. Thank you! But as far as I understood, there is not a safe chance of healing a certain percentage of patients yet, right? I know that researchers are working very hard on making the chemotherapy, radiation and surgery as effective as possible but I have not yet heard about cure really...
