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.
