Bile Duct Diseases
A variety of diseases can affect your bile ducts, all causing some form of blockage and therefore causing similar symptoms.
Gallbladder and Bile Duct Cancer
The gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped pouch that lies beneath the liver, in the upper abdomen. It stores bile. This fluid, produced by the liver, helps digest fat. The gallbladder releases bile into the small intestine through the bile duct. This thin tube connects the liver and gallbladder to the small intestine. Cancer develops when abnormal cells in these structures multiply and grow rapidly.
Gallstones
Gallstones are rock-like nuisances that can form inside the gallbladder.
