Contact your health care provider if you think you may have been exposed to the hepatitis B virus, have a risk factor for the virus, have not been vaccinated, or are experiencing symptoms. Your health care provider will conduct tests to diagnosis your condition.
Those infected with hepatitis B should be evaluated by a health care provider for liver disease. Lifelong monitoring of liver function and screening for liver cancer are important for adults and children with chronic hepatitis B infection. If you're currently being treated for hepatitis B, see your heath care provider right away if your symptoms become worse or new symptoms appear.
