hi.

noted history of bile duct cancer and hypertension. when was the last work-ups done? with regards to his life span, it is dependent on the cancer staging and/or the advancement of his disease. it is best if he consult with a doctor, preferably a general surgeon, for physical examination and clinical evaluation. complete metastatic workup must also be done. diagnostics and management (medical and/or surgical if indications are found) will be directed accordingly.

hope this helps.

good day!!
