You can have hepatitis C and not have any signs or symptoms
Most people will show no signs or symptoms of initial infection. However, if symptoms exist they can include:
- Loss of appetite
- Abdominal pain and discomfort
- Swelling of the abdomen
- Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes)
These signs and symptoms can also be associated with other illnesses or infections.
Hepatitis C can still be passed on to others even if a person has no symptoms.
