Hepatitis C

Hep C Icon

Hepatitis C (HCV) causes inflammation of the liver and is the most common form of viral hepatitis. Symptoms are often flu-like, but not severe, and many patients have no symptoms at all. HCV can be acute or chronic. There are treatments available for HCV. People born from 1945-1965 are five times more likely to have HCV and should be encouraged to get screened.
