In brief: Doubtful
Asymptomatic carriage of hep b is common, although some hepatologists would recommend biopsy to be certain that the status of the disease is proven.
There are several antivirals (lamivudine, adefovir, tenofovir, telbivudine, and entecavir), and immune system modulators (interferon Alpha 2a, and peg if Alpha 2a) which can be used in therapy, but your hepatologist would explain these effectively.
