Hep Lessons: Hepatitis C Progression
« on: July 13, 2015, 01:16:41 pm »
Being infected with HCV does not necessarily mean that liver disease will occur. What's more, it can take several years—decades, in many cases—for HCV to cause life-threatening liver disease.

Of every 100 people infected with the hepatitis C virus, about:

    -75 to 85 people will develop chronic hepatitis C virus infection; of those,
    -60 to 70 people will go on to develop chronic liver disease,
    -5 to 20 people will go on to develop cirrhosis over a period of 20 to 30 years
    -1 to 5 people will die from cirrhosis or liver cancer.
