|HCV & Lymphoma
Jun 17, 2007
My partner of 6 months has HCV. As far as I know I do not have HCV. I recently had a biopsy which is suspicious for lymphoma, and I'm waiting on further testing. The preliminary path report shows BCL-2 is positive. I ran across some information that HCV can somehow increase the chances of getting lymphoma. Can you shed any light on this connection? Thank you.
Response from Dr. McGovern
It is an epidemiologic link. However, if you do not have risk factors for hepatitis C in the past, this would probably not bear importance for you. I would simply get tested.
