In brief: Better to get tested
Many people have hep c and are not aware.
It is important to get tested since, the infection may be treatable and prevent liver damage.

In brief: No harm from test
Getting tested is a no-brainer..
.Why not. Risk behaviors are not the onl;y way to transmit the infection. It can be treated.
