In brief: An odd

Question. Gall bladder, the organ, or symptoms from its disease, do not mimic liver cancer.
A stone in the common bile duct could mimic biliary or pancreastic cancer (pain and jaundice), but none of this can last 10 years. Liver cysts can be their from birth. Mets to liver imply aggressive primary cancer; ergo 10 yr history highly unlikely.
