What to Know About False Positives in Hepatitis C Testing

What Is Hepatitis C?

Hepatitis C is a viral infection that occurs in the liver. Typical symptoms include stomach ache, sickness, loss of appetite, tiredness, and flu-like signs. When these problems happen, they may be mistaken for those of other diseases. Therefore, it is necessary to get tested to find out whether you are having hepatitis C or not. In most cases, these symptoms are not so clear until your liver has been severely damaged. It means that you may have the disease without noticing it. [1]
