In brief: No
Hepatitis c is a virus that causes inflammation of the liver. This inflammation and cirrhosis (scarring) can lead to primary liver cancer also known as hepatocellular carcinoma.
About 20% of people who contract hep c will develop cirrhosis, and about 20% of those will go on to develop cancer.
