Response from Dr. Young
A positive hepatitis B virus surface antigen (HBV SAg) is indicative of having chronic hepatitis B. Persons with chronic hepatitis B should be monitored and screened for liver cancer (with blood tests or imaging studies). If you're also HIV positive, some antiretroviral treatments (tenofovir, 3TC, FTC) also are active against HBV.
