EBRT for bile duct cancer

Advantages of external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) for bile duct cancer may include the following:

  • EBRT is an outpatient procedure. This technique does not carry the standard risks or complications associated with surgery for bile duct cancer, which may include surgical bleeding, post-operative pain or the risk of stroke, heart attack or blood clot.
  • The procedure is painless.
  • EBRT poses no risk of radioactivity to you or others with whom you have contact. As you undergo EBRT, you may continue normal activities with family and friends.
