Hello, Ranimeria, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Tuberculosis can attack not only the lungs but also organs outside the lungs, such as the lymph nodes, bones, intestines, and brain. In lymph node TB, the symptoms are: a lump in the neck that continues to grow and is not painful, weight loss, fever, unwell, or chills.
Indeed, according to the results of ultrasound, there appears to be lymphadenopathy or enlarged lymph nodes. The causes of lymphadenopathy can be various, such as the presence of viral, bacterial, fungal, parasite, immune system disorders, or abnormal tissue growth processes (neoplasms). However, the diagnosis of a disease cannot be confirmed solely from ultrasound results alone. The main thing is the result of in-depth interviews regarding the patient's symptoms and physical examination conducted directly by the doctor. In the case of a lump, which can confirm the diagnosis is a biopsy (taking tissue in the lump to be seen under a microscope). This process can be assisted by ultrasound, blood tests, sputum tests, x-rays, CT-scans, and other tests that can support the diagnosis.
For that, follow the advice of the doctor who treats you. If after this an examination is still needed to support the diagnosis, then follow it so that the exact cause can be found and can get the right therapy according to the cause.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
Greetings, dr. Sarah Rizqia.
