Kuala Terengganu: Majority of the 2.5 million Malaysians detected with liver cancer are men, Malaysian Liver Foundation president, Tan Sri Dr Mohd Ismail Merican said today.
He said Sabah and Sarawak topped the list for hepatitis B in the country and attributed it to, among others, the influx of foreigners in both the states.
Kelantan, he said, recorded the highest number of cases for hepatitis A.
"Hepatitis B can be transmitted from an infected mother to her child during the birthing process, sharing of drug injection needles or for blood transfusion," he added.
He was speaking to reporters after the opening of a hepatitis awareness campaign by the Sultanah of Terengganu, Sultanah Nur Zahirah, at Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT) here today.
Ismail said the foundation was tracing hepatitis patients in the country to provide them with necessary assistance and counselling. -- Bernama
