Acute and Chronic Hepatitis C
Hepatitis C is a viral liver infection that is spread through contaminated blood and bodily fluids.
Acute Hepatitis C
Acute hepatitis C can cause mild to no symptoms and can resolve in a short period of time, sometimes without you knowing you have it.
Chronic Hepatitis C
Nearly 75 percent of acute hepatitis C cases turn into chronic hepatitis C. Symptoms of this ongoing infection may take years to appear. Left untreated or poorly managed, chronic hepatitis C can lead to irreversible liver damage and liver cancer.
