In brief: Chemo v. Palliative
Cholangiocarcinoma or cancer of the billiary tract in the liver is a difficult cancer to treat when unresectable.
There are a number of chemotherapy options; these are best discussed with a cancer specialist. Many patients with truly end stage disease, usually, but not always, might want to consider a purely palliative approach to care.
