Bile duct cancer, also known as cholangiocarcinoma, is a rare cancer that forms in the tubes (ducts) that run in and out of your liver and carry bile, which helps you digest food. Bile duct cancer poses serious health risks if left untreated because it could block your bile ducts and spread to other organs, causing a range of problems from liver failure to sepsis.
