Hello,
All cases of chronic hepatitis B do not always lead to fatal liver disease. Diseases like cirrhosis and liver cancer can develop many years later in life. There are several approved drugs for chronic hepatitis B.Not all patients need medications. Some patients only need to be monitored by their doctor on a regular basis while patients with active signs of liver disease may benefit the most from treatment. Alcohol has damaging effects on the liver. Do not take alcohol. With early testing, regular medical attention, and new treatment options the prognosis is good. Hope it helped.
Best luck and regards!
