What are the Chances of me getting Hepititus C
May 29, 2002

I really want to get my belly button pierced but i heard that there are a lot of diseases that I could get. What are the chances of me getting those diseases?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

It is impossible to assess the chances of an individual piercing. However, if I were you, I would make sure that any place I went for this would be very, very clean and sterile and that all instruments are disposable. Good luck! DTD

lymphoma, acyclovir and HAART
