Another Name For Pulmonary Spots?
Is the medical language from the spots on the lungs?
Lung spots or lung infections caused by specific bacterial infections such as tuberculosis infection. Tuberculosis itself is characterized by several symptoms such as coughing for more than 3 weeks, chest pain, fever for no apparent reason, weight loss, night sweats, coughing with blood spots, enlarged lymph nodes and fatigue.
To ensure this, in addition to conducting interviews and physical examinations, supporting examinations are also carried out such as blood tests, sputum sample examinations, X-rays, Mantoux tests, or CT scans. If you get a positive result, you will be treated with anti-tuberculosis drugs for 6 months and can be extended depending on the condition experienced.
If you have had tuberculosis before, an X-ray examination can give the impression of tuberculosis which is called an inactive pulmonary tuberculosis lesion, which is marked by connective tissue formation or fibrosis, calcification or thickening of the lung membrane or pleural scwarte.
