Hepatitis C which is an infection that affects the liver and causes causes inflammation Often jaundice or yellowing of the body are the only symptoms of the illness. Hepatitis C is however preventable as there is a vaccine available. Hepatitis C can spread through sexual contact and through sharing needles. If a patient shows yellowing of the eyes or the skin, they should immediately be medically treated as Hepatitis C can be chronic and threaten your life. In fact, chronic Hepatitis C is often the cause for cirrhosis of the liver, a condition which demands a liver surgery to treat it.
Hepatitis C treatment is relatively straightforward if it is in the early stages of the disease. Your doctor will look through your tests and prescribe you medication for the illness. However, if the disease keeps returning i.e. if you have recurrent Hepatitis C infections, you might develop cirrhosis of the liver. In case you already have chronic Hepatitis C infection, treatment will be long and expensive and your doctor will try to make sure that cirrhosis does not happen. If cirrhosis has already happened, your doctor will have to treat that and if you are looking at end stage liver damage, liver transplant is your only option. Treatment of Hepatitis C can be expensive irrespective of the stage of the disease. Crowdfunding can help with many of these treatments.

One thing you need to remember is that medical crowdfunding India has caught on because funding for liver transplants in India is limited.
