Hepatitis is inflammation of the liver. It can be brought on by alcohol, drugs, viruses and other toxins. Viral hepatitis refers to hepatitis resulting from infection of the liver by the hepatitis A, B, C, D or E viruses - hepatitis A, B and C being the most common. These viruses all produce similar symptoms, but differ in modes of transmission and long-term effects on health.
Hepatitis B is spread through blood, sexual fluids and from mother to child during birth. If left unmanaged, it can lead to cirrhosis and liver cancer.
