Yesterday my mum was diagnosed with a tumor in her bile duct. As yet we are
not sure whether or not it is operable. Her symptons were jaundice, ithcing,
pain in the upper right handside of her stomach, nausea.... Fortunately these
systems can also be the symptoms of plain old 'gall stones'. Of course for my
mum, unfortunately this is not the case. She has undergone the gambit of
tests: CT Scans, ERCP.... and normally the CT scan is very good at detecting
tumours. However, in her case it did not not. Your best bet is to get it
checked out. Good Luck and I hope for you it is just Gallstones !
