Hepatitis C is an infection that is caused by a virus that attacks the liver, which leads to inflammation. Most people infected with the virus do not experience any symptoms. In fact, most people do not know they’re infected with Hep C until liver damage is found during routine testing.
The Hepatitis C virus is spread when a person comes in contact with contaminated blood. Examples of transmission include:
- Blood transfusions and organ transplants that occurred before 1992
- Shared needles
- Tattoos or body piercings
- Sexual contact
Hepatitis C usually produces no signs or symptoms during its early stages. However, it is important to seek treatment if you think you may be infected. Left untreated, Hepatitis C infection may cause severe complications, such as scarring of liver tissue, liver cancer, and liver failure.
