Do you think you are at risk for Hep C?


Getting tested

If you are infected with Hep C, there is a risk that you could be passing the virus on to family and friends through your blood, even if you don't have any symptoms.

The good news is that getting tested for Hep C is quick and easy. As well, for many people, it’s curable. The first test your healthcare professional will do is a blood test, and you can have results back in a few days.

The sooner you find out, the sooner you may be able to discuss your options with your healthcare professional. Early treatment can help you prevent damage to your liver. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, out of the people who develop chronic Hep C:



60–70%

will develop chronic
liver disease


Up to 20%

will get cirrhosis


1–5%

will die from liver cancer
or cirrhosis
