The tests you will have if you are or might be living with hepatitis C are as follows:

  • Testing to see if you have hepatitis C.
  • Testing to see the extent to which hepatitis C has damaged your liver.
  • If you have advanced cirrhosis you might need testing to see if you have developed liver cancer.
