Hepatitis C- Cause of Liver Cancer

Description : Only a small fraction of people in the acute phase of Hepatitis C, about 25%, really feel any of the symptoms of infection like fatigue, decrease in appetite, nausea, jaundice (skin and eye turning yellow).

When the blood of a person infected with Hepatitis C (HCV) is transmitted into the blood of an uninfected person, the infection spreads.

The fact that one is infected with Hepatitis C (HCV) need not always mean that one can be afflicted with a liver disease. It takes many years, sometimes, even decades for Hepatitis C to bring about life-threatening diseases of the liver.
