Ayurvedic Treatment for Hilar Cholangiocarcinoma


Hilar cholangiocarcinoma is a complex and aggressive type of bile duct cancer which occurs in the bile ducts just outside of the liver (hepatic ducts). The bile ducts affected in this disease lead out of the liver and join with the gallbladder.

Hilar cholangiocarcinoma is also called Klatskin tumor. This rare disease generally presents in the sixth decade of a person's life; and has a poor prognosis. The patients suffering from this disease commonly present with stomach pain, jaundice, pruritis, and weight loss.

The apparent cause behind the occurrence of Hilar cholangiocarcinoma is that the development of mutations (changes) in the DNA of the cells in the bile ducts. Since DNA is the material which is responsible for providing instructions for different chemical process in your body, the DNA mutations lead to changes in the instructions.

Due to the DNA mutations, the cells in the bile ducts start growing out of control, with the result that a tumor -- an accumulation of cancerous cells -- is formed over a period of time. The exact reason behind the cancer-causing genetic mutations is not known.


Some of the common symptoms of Hilar cholangiocarcinoma include:

  • Jaundice
  • Abdominal pain
  • Tremendously itchy skin
  • Unintended weight loss
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Pruritus
  • Dark-colored urine
  • Clay-colored stools.


The risk factors associated with Hilar cholangiocarcinoma are:

  • Primary sclerosing cholangitis (PSC)
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Viral hepatitis
  • Bile duct problems present at birth
  • Parasitic liver disease
  • Chronic liver disease
  • Biliary stone disease.


The tests and procedures which are generally used for the diagnosis of Hilar cholangiocarcinoma are:

  • Blood tests
  • Imaging tests like MRI and CT
  • Biopsy.
