Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What is Hepatitis C?

A: Chronic Hepatitis C (HCV) is a long-term disease that affects millions of Americans. HCV is a disease of the liver that can lead to long-term complications such as cirrhosis (scarring of the liver), liver cancer, and potentially death. It is important to contact your doctor as soon as you think you might be infected with HCV.

Q: How do I know if I have Hepatitis C?

A: Symptoms of HCV include fatigue, joint pain, belly pain, itchy skin, sore muscles, dark urine, or yellow appearance of eyes or skin (jaundice). Advanced stages of HCV can lead to cirrhosis. Symptoms of cirrhosis are redness of the palms, clusters of red blood vessels below the skin, swelling of belly, lungs, and feet, shrinking of muscles, and confusion or cognitive impairment.

Q: What do I do if I think I have Hepatitis C?

A: Before receiving treatment for HCV, a genotype test is required to see what kind of virus is causing the infection. Based on your genotype result, specific medication regimens will be used to treat your HCV. Your doctor will also be able to help you manage any other symptoms related to HCV.
