What does it take to outsmart cancer? This gives a more accurate picture of cancer survival. Those who have bile duct cancer outside the liver have slightly better chances. National Cancer Institute's SEER programme - bile duct cancer survival for people diagnosed between 2000 and 2006. They are divided into intrahepatic and extrahepatic bile duct cancers.
