Hepatitis C: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Hepatitis C is a viral infection caused by the Hepatitis C virus (HCV). It primarily targets the liver and can lead to both acute and chronic liver disease. The virus is primarily spread through contact with the blood of an infected person. Common modes of transmission include sharing needles among drug users, receiving contaminated blood transfusions, or unsafe medical procedures. While less common, it can also be transmitted through sexual contact.
