Hepatitis B causes up to 80% of all liver cancer and most often appears in people of working age between 35-65 years. In the United States, 1 in 12 Asian Americans is chronically infected with the hepatitis B virus. Forty percent of the world’s cases are in China, where carriers can face discrimination and stigmatization in the workplace due to misconceptions surrounding transmission.
Hepatitis B is spread through birth, blood or sex and is vaccine preventable. Screening and early detection are critically important.
