About Hepatitis test

Who should get tested for hepatitis?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), anyone who has been exposed to hepatitis or is at risk should get tested. This includes individuals who have used injected drugs, had a blood transfusion or organ transplant before 1992, are on long-term hemodialysis, or have been in close contact with someone infected with hepatitis. Additionally, people born from 1945-1965, also known as baby boomers, are five times more likely to have hepatitis C and should be tested.

Importance of getting tested

Getting tested for hepatitis is crucial as it can lead to serious health issues if left untreated, such as liver damage, liver cancer, and even death. Early detection can help prevent these complications and allow for effective treatment. Moreover, individuals who know they have hepatitis can take steps to prevent spreading the virus to others.

Hepatitis testing options in Canyon, TX:

Urgent care and walk-in clinics

Urgent care and walk-in clinics provide quick and convenient hepatitis testing. Highly rated CareXpress Urgent Care in Canyon, TX, and two locations in nearby Amarillo, TX, offer same-day and next-day appointments which can be booked through Solv's website and mobile app.

Primary care providers

Primary care providers are a reliable option for hepatitis testing. They can provide ongoing care and treatment if you test positive.

Free STD testing and community health centers

Community health centers offer free or low-cost hepatitis testing, making it accessible to those with limited resources.

At-home testing

At-home testing kits provide a private and convenient option for those who prefer to test themselves at home. These kits can be ordered online, and the samples can be sent back to a lab for testing.

Prevalence of hepatitis in Canyon

While specific data for Canyon, TX, is not readily available, the state of Texas has seen a significant number of hepatitis cases. According to the CDC, Texas reported over 16,000 cases of chronic hepatitis C in 2016. Comparatively, nearby counties such as Clark County and Haskell County have reported lower rates of hepatitis.

Risk factors related to hepatitis in Canyon

Risk factors for hepatitis in Canyon may include unprotected sex, drug use, and close contact with someone who has hepatitis. It's important to note that Canyon's proximity to larger cities like Amarillo could potentially increase the risk of hepatitis transmission due to higher population density and increased rates of drug use.

Other STDs in Canyon

In addition to hepatitis, other STDs such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, HIV, and syphilis are also present in Canyon and nearby areas. According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, in 2019, Randall County, where Canyon is located, reported 545 cases of chlamydia, 172 cases of gonorrhea, and 15 cases of syphilis. These numbers underscore the importance of regular testing for all sexually active individuals.
