Gallbladder Cancer FAQs

It’s normal to have quite a few questions after being diagnosed with gallbladder cancer. You may be wondering how far your cancer has spread, what your treatment options are or what the general survival rate is. You might also be wondering about clinical trials or where to turn for supportive care.

In order to get the most individualized, up-to-date information, you’ll want to find an oncologist who specializes in treating gallbladder cancer. He or she can give you more tailored advice than someone who only treats a few cases of gallbladder cancer per year. A specialist can also take your specific diagnosis into account and give you more relevant answers about your treatment options and prognosis. That’s why, at Moffitt Cancer Center, we encourage our patients to consult with our medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists and supportive care providers. We’re committed to providing comprehensive guidance at every step of the way and empowering our patients to become active participants in the treatment process.
