Are You at Risk for Hepatitis C?

Last updated 2 years ago

Hepatitis C is a virus that causes liver damage, and in some cases, liver cancer. This video discusses who should get tested for this disease.

Healthcare experts have found that a high number of hepatitis C patients fall into a certain age range. In fact, many people with this virus are between 49 and 69 years of age. For this reason, doctors advise patients born between 1945 and 1965 to undergo testing for hepatitis C. Especially because this virus can be asymptomatic for several decades, knowing if it is present is key to getting early treatment for it.
