Response from Dr. McGovern

You have hepatitis C in your blood. This only tells me that you need to have further evaluation as to whether or not you have scarring in your liver. Then treatment may be necessary. Not everyone needs treatment since not everyone develops scarring.

Hep B vacination if I have Hep C
help understanding lab results?
