Metastatic Biliary Tract Cancer overview

Metastatic biliary tract cancer, originating from bile duct cells, spreads to distant areas like the liver, lymph nodes, or lungs. Symptoms, like jaundice and abdominal pain, manifest late. Diagnosis entails imaging scans and biopsies. Treatment focuses on palliative care to alleviate symptoms and prolong life, employing chemotherapy, targeted therapies, or immunotherapy. Prognosis remains guarded due to advanced stage upon diagnosis and limited therapeutic options, often leading to a shorter life expectancy. Clinical trials explore innovative treatments, but metastatic biliary tract cancer poses a significant challenge, emphasizing the importance of symptom management and supportive care to enhance patients’ quality of life.
