Brief Answer:
Bile duct cancer is NOT a possibility in your case.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir.

I understand your concern.

You seem to be on recovery phase of acute hepatitis E.

None of your conditions like Acute Hepatitis E,Typhoid or XXXXXXX syndrome are associated with the risk of bile duct cancer.

Bile duct cancer usually arises in the setting of long standing stones,parasitic infections with liver flukes,inflammatory bowel disease etc.

Its usually seen in age groups 60-70's.

Post your further queries if any.

Thank you.
