To reduce your risk of getting liver cancer:
- If you use needles to inject medication or drugs, always use a clean needle. Do not share needles with anyone else.
- Use condoms when having sexual intercourse if you or your partner is not in a monogamous relationship or if you don't know if your partner has hepatitis.
- Have children vaccinated against hepatitis B.
- Drink alcohol in moderation. This means no more than two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women.
