Answer

In both males and females, cholangiocarcinoma is most common in persons in their 60s and 70s. The male-to-female ratio for cholangiocarcinoma is 1:2.5 in patients in their 60s and 70s and 1:15 in patients younger than 40 years. According to the American Cancer Society, the number of new cases of liver and intrahepatic bile duct cancer in 2019 is estimated to be 29,480 for men and 12,550 for women, with deaths estimated at 21,600 and 10,180, respectively.
