It's best to always get a second, and perhaps even 3rd or 4th, opinion with the potential of this cancer. Many Dr's and medical centers are not very familiar with it. Try to find a medical center that does have experience and especially a surgeon with CC (cholangiocarcinoma) experience. It isn't always the case but when surgery is possible it is the best hope for an extended quality of life.

Best wishes. It's a difficult path but with courage and endurance you may be able to find help. There is more specific information on the other website that is devoted to this disease.
