    This is what I had. I am 46 and 17 days post op Left lobe liver resection. The pathology came back as intraductal papillary carcinoma in situ. I think not much is known about this disease except that it is a variant of cholangiocarcinoma? Or a precursor? I was scared for a long time because the MRI pointed toward CCA. (it was found on an ultrasound for something else – I have no symptoms) But my ex-boyfriend has PSC and is suffering with this cancer now. So I am no stranger to this disease. So how much is known about this? Is there NO risk of recurrence after surgery? What are the 10 year survival rates?/outcomes?

    Any information is appreciated.

    Intraductal papillary neoplasm of the bile duct (IPNB): A biliary equivalent to IPMN of the pancreas?

    “Given their significant risk of harboring invasive carcinoma, they should be treated with complete resection. (HEPATOLOGY 2012.)”
