It is a kind of viral infection that attacks the liver and can lead to life-long disability, cancer, or even death. It is transmitted through contact with blood or other body fluids that contain the virus. A vaccine against Hepatitis B has been available since 1982 and is 95% effective.

Not curable, but most people will recover shortly. If a chronic infection happens it could be lifelong. (Cleveland Clinic)

8. Hepatitis C 

It is another liver disease, which is often symptomless or its effects are very mild. An infected person's body is frequently able to fight off the virus, leading to a complete recovery. However, like hepatitis B, there is also the possibility of this illness becoming chronic.

With proper treatment, many people can be cured. (WHOIf a chronic infection develops it could be lifelong if not treated. (CDC
