My husband died of cholangiocarcinoma and was a Viet Nam veteran. Does anyone know of any other vets who have died of this cancer? It can be caused by the Chinese liver fluke that can lie dormant for many years. The Veteran's Admin. says I must prove he had the fluke to claim benefits. Cholangiocarcinoma is very prevelent in southeast Asia and very rare in the United States. I am desperate for info. on this subject. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
