Jaundice in Adults

Statistically, one of the most likely causes of your jaundice is hepatitis (liver inflammation). There are many different causes of hepatitis.

Hepatitis can cause several symptoms in addition to jaundice. Some common symptoms include:

- Discomfort in the upper abdomen

- Nausea

- Aching joints

- Abdominal swelling

- Weight loss

- Easy bruisability and spontaneous bleeding

Let's consider whether you have some of the most common risks for hepatitis.

Did you receive a blood transfusion prior to 1992, or have you ever injected street drugs (heroin or any other drug) in your past?

Yes, one of these risks applies to me.

No, these risks don't apply to me.
