Health Issue: Hepatitis C

Symptoms and Facts

Many people who are infected with the hepatitis C do not have symptoms.

If the infection has been present for many years, the liver may be permanently scarred, a condition called cirrhosis. In many cases, there may be no symptoms of the disease until cirrhosis has developed.

The following symptoms could occur with hepatitis C infection:

  • Abdominal pain (right upper abdomen)
  • Ascites
  • Bleeding varices (dilated veins in the esophagus)
  • Dark urine
  • Fatigue
  • Generalized itching
  • Jaundice
  • Loss of appetite
  • Low-grade fever
  • Nausea
  • Pale or clay-colored stools
  • Vomiting
