Viral hepatitis leads to liver cancer; UAE doctor explains prevention and treatment

Public awareness is vital in combating liver cancer risk from viral hepatitis, says UAE doctor. Early detection, vaccination, and preventive measures are crucial. Hepatitis can cause acute and chronic liver disease, including cancer.

Symptoms may not appear, leading to advanced liver scarring and cancer.

Five main hepatitis viruses (A, B, C, D, and E) exist, each with its transmission methods and potential complications. Vaccines are available for hepatitis A and B, while treatments exist for chronic B and C infections. Over 350 million people worldwide live with viral hepatitis, leading to millions of deaths yearly.

Preventive measures include vaccination, hygiene practices, and regular testing for hepatitis B and C. Regular medical follow-ups are essential for those diagnosed with hepatitis B to monitor virus activity and detect early liver cancer.
