Good afternoon, thanks for the question
From the results of the chest x-ray examination, it was found that there were spots or spots in the upper lung field, as well as a small amount of fluid in the lining of the right lung. These spots are suspected of being caused by TB infection based on the results of X-ray examinations but must still be ascertained through the clinical symptoms felt by the patient and the results of his physical examination. Spots in the upper lung fields are often caused by TB infection, but it needs to be evaluated whether it is an active form of infection or a scar of old infection. Associated with the presence of effusion or minimal fluid in the right lung can also be associated with TB infection or other disease processes. If indeed the results of the examination can be ascertained a TB infection that has relapsed, then again TB therapy should be routinely given a different treatment procedure from the initial treatment. Therefore, do further consultations with your treating doctor to confirm the results of the examination.
That's all, hope you can help.
