All Adults Should Be Tested for Hepatitis C

Here are three things you should know about hepatitis C. 

  • One. Millions of Americans have hepatitis C and many don’t know it. 
  • Two. Hepatitis C is a leading cause of liver cancer. 
  • Three. Hepatitis C can be cured. Talk to your doctor about getting tested. It could save your life.

Hepatitis C is the most commonly reported bloodborne infection in the United States. No vaccine against hepatitis C exists and no effective pre- or post- exposure prophylaxis is available, but there is treatment that can cure infection. More than half of persons who become infected with HCV will develop chronic infection.
