Cholangiocarcinoma or bile duct cancer is composed of mutated epithelial, that originate in the bile ducts, which drain bile from the liver into the small intestine. Prominent symptoms include abnormal liver function tests, abdominal pain, jaundice, and weight. Other symptoms such as generalized itching, fever, and changes in the color of stool or urine may also occur.

The following tests may be ordered by the oncologists to confirm Cholangiocarcinoma:
• Abdominal CT scan and Ultrasound
• Liver function tests through blood tests
• CT-Scan directed biopsy
• Cytology of samples from the bile duct
• Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography
• Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography
• Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiogram
