Cholangiocarcinoma is a malignant formation that develops from the epithelium of the bile ducts. The disease is quite common and can occur in any part of the biliary tract. Often, the doctor can notice the formation in the extrahepatic tubes. Unfortunately, it is rather challenging to detect pathology at an early stage, since the symptoms are extremely mild. It is worth noting that the tumor grows rather slowly, grows into internal structures, and gives metastases.
How is the disease manifested?
If you notice the occurrence of the following symptoms, you should immediately consult a doctor:
- Blood in the urine;
- Swelling of the extremities;
- The presence of swelling in the lumbar region;
- Low back pain;
- Increased blood pressure;
- Increase in body temperature;
- General malaise.
These signs are not typical for the disease. An experienced specialist will be able to make the correct diagnosis after diagnosis.
How is the diagnosis of the disease
To make a correct diagnosis, the doctor uses the following research methods:
- Ultrasound of internal organs;
- PET CT;
- X-ray analysis;
Based on the data obtained, the doctor draws up an individual therapy regimen, taking into account the characteristics of the disease's development and the general condition of the patient.
