Hepatitis B Testing
The only way to know for sure if you have hepatitis B is to get tested. Hepatitis B is not routinely tested for and unless you ask for it from your family doctor, they will not include it in routine check-ups.
Chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) is one of the most common risk factor for liver cancer and it is preventable. Request a blood test for HBV from your GP today.
Did you know in Australia, you no longer need to see a specialist for chronic hepatitis B if not necessary, because there are s100 prescribers (GPs) near you who can help monitor and treat the condition.
