Is cirrhosis contagious?

A Answers (1)

  • You cannot catch cirrhosis from a person who is infected. However, you can catch hepatitis from someone else, and hepatitis, as well as other liver diseases, can cause cirrhosis. To avoid hepatitis, be sure you do not come into contact with another person's bodily fluids.
