Benign Tumors of the Biliary System
Benign tumors of the bile ducts are a rarity, while tumors of the gallbladder are more frequently encountered. Benign lesions of the gallbladder are usually detected incidentally, whereas in the bile ducts they may cause obstructive jaundice. The latter should be resected whenever possible, due to the difficulty of differentiating benign lesions from early cancer.
