According to a new report from the Australian Institude of Health and Welfare, the fastest growing cause of cancer mortality in Australia is liver cancer - caused mainly by chronic hepatitis B and C.
Hepatitis C is a viral infection of the liver by the blood-borne Hepatitis C Virus. It results in liver inflammation and over time, can lead to chronic liver disease.
Some people with hepatitis C experience flu-like symptoms. Others don't have any symptoms in the first ten years or so after infection.
The hepatitis C virus is transmitted only from blood to bloodstream. Infection occurs when blood with hepatitis C virus gets into the bloodstream of another person.
The presence of hepatitis C virus in the blood is detected with a PCR test on blood samples.
