In brief: The main duct
Draining the liver (common bile duct) collects the drainage from the gall bladder when the cystic duct joins.
The gall bladder in intimately position with the liver, and gb cancer can lead to nodes obstructing these ducts or invasion directly into the liver.

In brief: Blocks bile ducts
The gallbladder cancer obstructs the bile ducts.
Blocking the bile ducts leads to a build up of bile (the yellow stuff) that can be seen in the eyes, then skin.
