Other Tumors of the Bile Ducts and Gallbladder Biliary malignancies comprise the vast majority of biliary neoplasms and are divided into the following three categories: (1) carcinomas of the intra- and extrahepatic bile ducts; (2) carcinoma of the gallbladder; and (3) carcinoma of the ampulla of Vater. 1 In the United States and other Western nations, biliary malignancies are rare. extrahepatic tumors of the bile ducts  (Figure 1). Gallbladder cancer is defined as cancer arising from the gallbladder and the cystic duct. Ampullary cancers are rare and have better prognosis than cancers of the distal bile duct. Cancers arising from the distal common bile duct immediately adjacent to the ampulla of Vater tend. Extrahepatic bile ducts and ampulla of Vater: Imaging, surgical exploration with examination of resected specimen and lymph nodes. TNM staging for liver, gallbladder, extrahepatic bile duct cancer applies only to carcinomas. TNM staging for pancreatic cancer applies only to carcinomas;.
Cancer of the biliary tract may involve the gallbladder, the intrahepatic and extrahepatic bile ducts, or the ampulla of Vater. Learn more about how to diagnose, stage, and treat these rare but. Lower down, the gallbladder (a small organ that stores bile) is joined to the common hepatic duct by a small duct called the cystic duct. This combined duct is called the common bile duct. The common bile duct passes through part of the pancreas before it joins with the pancreatic duct and empties into the first part of the small intestine. The extrahepatic bile ducts are part of a network of ducts that carry bile from the liver and gallbladder to the small intestine. Bile is a yellowish-green fluid made by the liver. Bile flows from the liver, through the hepatic ducts, into the cystic duct and to the gallbladder, where it is stored. Ampulla of Vater.
