Abstract

Mass health screening (MHS) for detecting early cancer of hepatobiliary diseases is not common. However, as high risk factors for developing hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been established in Japan, MHS for HCC is available, especially in high endemic areas of hepatitis C. Intrahepatic bile duct cancer often occur in patients with Thorotrastosis. Cohort study for detection of early cancer of intrahepatic bile duct has been conducting by the Japanese Government. Early detection of bile duct cancer in health screening is very rare. It will be helpful for perform MHS to clarify the high risk factors for bile duct cancers.
