Liver Cancer from Hepatitis C?

January 29th, 2011 by admin

If you have Hepatitis C (HCV) is it possible that you will also develop liver cancer?  Yes, in a study done in Japan it was noted that about 75% of patients with liver cancer also have Hepatitis C.  Most of the patients with the HCV virus who also have liver cancer have scarring of the liver from cirrhosis.  Once cirrhosis is developed it takes on average about 8-10 years for liver cancer to develop.

 

The liver cancer risk factors for Hepatitis C patients include developing cirrhosis, being an older aged male, alcohol use, being dually infected with the Hepatitis B virus, and having an elevated  baseline level of a blood tumor marker, alpha-fetoprotein.

 

Find out if you have Hepatitis C – go get tested now.  You can order a home medical test kit that can be done in the privacy of your home, then mail the results to a lab.  Full instructions are given in the kit.  Proper follow up with your doctor is recommended if the test is positive.

What’s the Difference Between Hepatitis C and Hepatitis B?

December 23rd, 2010 by admin

What is the difference between Hepatitis C and Hepatitus B?  And also can it be possible to have a false positive on a Hepatitis B test? My friend tested negative 4 months ago for it, but now she got a test again and it came back positive this time, but nothing has changed in her life. Same sex partner, no cheating, no drug use or anything. So she went back today to get another re-test, thinking that the positive test was a mistake. We won’t find out the answers for a few days though.

But basically the reason why she gets tested so often for this type of stuff is because she is trying to get pregnant with invitro, and they must test for all of these diseases before they will inseminate you with the fertilized egg. Anyway, if she does really have Hepatitis B, why isn’t she sick? And will she eventually get sick? And also, how long does it take to show up on a blood test before you do test positive for Hepatitis B, I mean can she have caught it a year ago, but it just now showed up?

Do You Have Hepatitis C ? Find Out Now !

What is Hepatitis C?

Hepatitis C is a bloodborne infection, and may result from exposure to blood or body fluids that contain the hepatitis C Virus  (HCV). The hepatitis C Virus can and does damage the liver.

HCV is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis C virus. People infected with the hepatitis C virus may carry it for the rest of their lives. Hepatitis C infection may not show any symptoms until the liver is severely damaged by the virus. The virus can cause cirrhosis and scarring of the liver tissue, liver cancer can develop in later stages and liver failure may result over a long period of time (20 to 30 years).

How do you get HCV?  Easier than you think !  As simple as sharing a razor or toothbrush with an infected person – it’s that easy as the video below shows.  It can also be contracted by IV drug use with shared needles, sharing spoons and rinse water and sharing straws and other devices during drug use.   Tattoos with unsterile needles can be a cause of HCV and any other activity that allows HCV infected blood to come in contact with a non-infected host. Blood transfusions before 1991 can also be known to cause HCV.

You cannot get HCV from: Hugging, kissing, eating utensils, tears, saliva, sweat, toilets, shower stalls, tubs, or bedding.

Hepatitis C is a bloodborne infection, and may result from exposure to blood or body fluids that contain the hepatitis C virus. Approximately 3.9 million Americans are infected with hepatitis C. Currently, hepatitis C is responsible for an estimated 8,000-10,000 deaths annually from chronic liver disease. Hepatitis C is the leading cause for liver transplant and the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. Comparatively, hepatitis C is five times more prevalent than HIV.

 

The majority of people infected with the hepatitis C virus don’t even know because of the silent nature (absence of symptoms) of the disease. Some people may even harbor this virus for 20+ years before they discover that they have it. The hepatitis C virus can and does damage the liver.
