My husband died of cholangiocarcenoma in Dec 1994 at the age of 35. We were told he was one of the youngest ever to have this disease. He was treated in Rochester MN at the Mayo Clinic. There is, of course, alot of information I could give you on his case, but I will reserve that for now. My question I would like to pose is this.... in the last 6 years have there been any findings on the cause of this illness? And what are the chances my two teenage sons could be susceptible to it? Is there any screening or signs to look for? Thank you for your time, and my prayers to you in combatting this terrible, terrible disease.
