Thank you asking HCM
HbsAg 8,905 show that he is carrier of hepatic virus B.

the other exams show that he has not acute hepatitis B, but may be is chronic hepatitis B.

to show if it is chronic hepatitis B, how active is the virus he should perform some other tests like ALT, AST transaminazes, bilirubin direct and indirect,
HBV-DNA, abdominal ultrasound.
After that he should consult a gatsro hepathologyst to decide if he has chronic hepatitis B, and if he should start anti- viral treatment.
all the best
