Hepatitis C is a virus that initially affects the liver. The answer to the question of do you need Hepatitis C tests in London, depends one of two thing only. Do you suspect you might have Hepatitis C, or are you showing typical symptoms?
Why Hepatitis C is such a dangerous infection
Hepatitis C does not always present symptoms, and this makes it a particularly nasty infection. You may only have minor symptoms which you do not recognise as being anything serious, or you may have no discernible symptoms. Either way, if you have an infection and it goes untreated, it will progress and could lead to cirrhosis and even death.
Because it is potentially such a serious disease, knowing whether you need Hepatitis C tests in London (or of course anywhere else here in the UK) is very important.
