Hepatitis B is a serious liver infection caused by the Hepatitis B virus (HBV). It spreads through contact with infectious body fluids, such as blood, semen, and vaginal fluids. Symptoms can range from mild to severe, including fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, abdominal pain, dark urine, and jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes). Chronic Hepatitis B can lead to liver cirrhosis or liver cancer.
