Lillie, I don't know what type of tumors. she told me they were slow growing. The stent they put in is helping at this time as her appetite is better and she feels better with the meds they have given her. They told her 5 years. She said the only problem would be if the cancer grows into the top of the stent...She hasn't mentioned anything about the pancreas, just that the bile duct cancer is in the bile duct that goes into the liver. One is totally gone...
