    My Mom started Chemo for Bile Duct Cancer and has done three rounds to which the result was the tumors continue to grow.

    Any suggestions on where to go next? Proton therapy?

      I was diagnosed with bile duct cancer stage 4 7 months ago. I have a Hepatic Artery Infusion pump (implanted pump that pumps chemo directly to liver 24/7 for two week intervals). My first CT scan after 6 weeks of treatment also showed tumor continuing to grow. My 2nd and 3rd scans showed tumor shrinking. Last scan May 30th showed no change.

      I am now getting systemic chemo for spots on lymph nodes.

      Bile duct cancer is a tough one. What stage is your Mom's cancer?
