Hepatitis C

Don’t Wait! Get Tested!

Hepatitis C is a liver infection that can cause serious illness when left untreated, such as cirrhosis, liver failure and liver cancer. However, it is curable and early treatment could save your life. Hepatitis C is spread through contact with infected blood, which can happen through:

  • Sharing needles
  • From parent to child at birth
  • Health care exposures
  • Sexual activity
  • Tattoos or body piercings in unsanitary conditions

When you have hepatitis C, you might not feel sick until it’s serious, so it’s important to get tested. The CDC recommends hepatitis C tests for all adults at least once and during every pregnancy. Some people, like those who inject drugs, should get tested regularly.
