Hep C

Hep C is mostly spread through blood contact (shared needles) and rarely spread through semen and sharing people’s razors and toothbrushes. Hep C can be mild or cause serious liver problems, including scarring of the liver or liver cancer. It can also cause death: Hep C causes more deaths than HIV/AIDS each year.
