Hepatitis C (HCV) is a virus that infects the liver and can cause serious liver damage and even death. It is spread by exposure to blood or body fluids that contain the virus. An estimated 3million adults in the United States are infected, but most of them don’t know it. However, early diagnosis and treatment are important, to help limit damage to the liver.
