Hepatobiliary cancer is an umbrella term used to describe several different types of cancers found in the hepatobiliary system, including liver cancer, gallbladder and bile duct cancer. The hepatobiliary system helps create, store and disperse bile, a fluid that helps your body digest food and get rid of waste. It is part of the digestive system.
