Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis B virus. Some forms of hepatitis B are mild and last a few weeks – others are chronic and can lead to liver cancer or cirrhosis and death. The virus is transmitted through the exchange of body fluids – through sex, sharing infected needles, or by an infected mother to her baby.
