    i have read a couple of articles about a connection between exposure to asbestos and bile duct cancer.

    does anyone else have knowledge of this, or a patient who has had exposure to asbestos?

    Dear Lucy

    As far as we are aware, there has been only a limited amount of research conducted into the connection between asbestos and this type of cancer, mainly from Assoc Professor Giovanni Brandi in Italy and also more recently a joint paper from researchers in Iceland, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

    These are links to the published papers:

    Asbestos: a hidden player behind the cholangiocarcinoma increase? Findings from a case-control analysis.

    Occupational exposure to asbestos and risk of cholangiocarcinoma: a population-based case–control study in four Nordic countries

    I Hope this information is useful to you.

    Kind regards

    Julie
