Yes the hot / cold is likely brought on by fever ...

The HEP C and cancer could both be a cau e of fever ...

Are you under the care of 1 ) a gastroenterologist that specializes in liver disease ? And 2) an oncologist ?

Did you have treatment for HEP C?

Do you know of recent viral count ?

Do you know of stage of liver cancer ?

I find it unusual with this history that you are on atorvastatin....

Let me know if you have further questions or concerns

I Will be happy to get back with you
