Q: How do I know if I need a transplant?

Most people with hepatitis C will never need a transplant. Your doctor will decide whether you need one. Before they can be placed on the list, candidates for livers must undergo many tests. Almost 17,500 people were waiting for new livers in mid-2005. The waiting list is long due to a shortage of organs for donation. For more information, go to Liver Transplant Program.
