Hepatitis C

Hepatitis C is a viral infection that affects the liver. It is a sexual transmitted disease but can also be transmitted through blood. If chronic, it can lead to liver cirrhosis, a serious and pre-cancerous liver condition. However, nowadays it is considered a potentially curable disease, managed with daily oral pharmacological treatment taken for several months.
