In the US, approximately 65% of liver cancer cases are related to hepatitis B or C with nearly 50% attributable to hepatitis C alone. Some groups of Americans are at increased risk for chronic viral hepatitis infection. Hepatitis B and C are treatable!

One visit is all it takes to get:

  • Liver staging (determine how healthy your liver is)
  • Labs
  • Vaccinations
  • Pharmacy visit, if needed
  • Start treatment, depending on what we find and your preference

Who should get tested for viral hepatitis?

The CDC recommends all adults ages 18+ should be tested for both hepatitis B and C once in their lifetime regardless of risk. If you are at risk, talk to your primary care provider today about getting tested and treated.
