Overview

Overview of epidemiology focused on tumors of the bile ducts and gallbladder is based on data of the National Cancer Registry and its newly validated and published data from 2016. In most recent period 2012–2016, 1013 patients were annually (in average) diagnosed with tumors of the bile ducts and gallbladder in the Czech Republic. In the same time, average annual mortality of this disease reached value 836. Prevalence of bile ducts and gallbladder cancer reached 1723 in 2016 and in comparison, with the value measured in 2006, it increased by 28 %. More than 50 % of bile ducts and gallbladder cancers are diagnosed in advanced clinical stages (stage III+) which makes prognosis of patients worse and limits reachable results of therapy.
