Being told that you have cancer

Cancer can affect any of the 'HPB' organs


If you have been diagnosed with cancer of the liver, pancreas, bile ducts or gallbladder, then we may be asked if we can try to help you by removing the cancer with an operation.


Please click on the list on the left for information about each type of HPB cancer.
