Get screened for liver disease.
You probably have no symptoms and feel healthy, but are still at increased risk for liver damage or liver cancer. However, regular screening and appropriate treatment can reduce this risk and help you lead a normal, healthy life.

Not every person with chronic HBV infection needs treatment. But if your ALT level is elevated, treatment with antiviral medication may be appropriate. Even though there is no cure for hepatitis B, appropriate treatment can reduce the risk of liver cancer and failure. Go to the Treatment section to read more.
