Dr. Kaneko
If a person is infected with hepatitis C virus, hepatitis advances slowly without symptoms over a long period of time. Symptoms are few, and there are many cases in which even the infected person is not aware of having hepatitis. If hepatitis is left untreated, there is a strong likelihood of its advancing to cirrhosis and hepatic cancer. In general, once a person is infected with hepatitis C virus, chronic hepatitis advances to cirrhosis over 20 - 30 years, in addition to hepatic cancer in 10 years.
