Hepatitis B and C are blood-borne infections caused by viruses. These viruses directly affect your liver, leading to inflammation, followed by scarring. Both hepatitis B and C can be contracted from:

  • Contaminated water
  • Needle-stick injuries
  • Bodily fluids

Both types of hepatitis infection cause:

  • Fever
  • Vomiting
  • Possible jaundice
  • Abdominal pain

Hepatitis B is curable. Early hepatitis B detection will prevent long-term liver damage. If you are at risk of either hepatitis B or C, IPSA Medical advises that you book a hepatitis consultation with your IPSA Medical doctor.

Your clinical history will be risk assessed by your IPSA Medical doctor. A full examination will follow, and then – if necessary – further investigations. If your IPSA Medical doctor determines that you have a high hepatitis B/C risk, sexual health screening (a blood test) and liver-function tests (a check of your liver’s health) are offered. Your hepatitis B/C results will be explained personally by your IPSA Medical doctor. You will be given a copy of the results.
