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.
