Re: Misspelled Cholangio???

When I first wrote my intro post and wrote the c word it put a red line under the word,try it...cholangiocarcinoma  !!!!!

Re: Misspelled Cholangio???

Oh, I get it.  Yes, Microsoft Word does not recognize the spelling of our disease.  In fact, when we first started to attend conferences, we made sure to ask physicians and researchers to please change over from bile duct cancer to Cholangiocarcinoma.  (Bile duct cancer works.)
Some time back I requested the NCI to change over also however; I was told that it was too difficult of a task due to the high amount of literature already submitted over the years.
So, we are stuck with it (for right now that is.)
