In brief: No

Hepatitis a causes acute inflammation of the liver, with the disease processes lasting for a few weeks.
Chronic inflammation of the liver increases the likelihood of cancer. Less than 3% of infected individuals may experience liver failure. However, once infected with hep a, the patient is immune for life, someone infected with hep a is more likely to experience liver failure than liver cancer.
