Hello, Aayunindra. Thank you for your question to HealthReplies.com.


Lung spots or in medical language known as tuberculosis, is a lung disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacilli, this disease can be transmitted through saliva. Symptoms of tuberculosis include coughing for more than 2 weeks, bleeding cough, chest pain, decreased appetite, weight loss, night sweats, weakness, fever and chills. The diagnosis of tuberculosis can be made by history, physical examination, laboratory examination and support with sputum examination, chest x-ray, CT scan, Mantoux test or Tuberculin Skin Test, and IGRA blood test (Interferon gamma release assay).


In general, the results of chest x-rays in children suffering from tuberculosis, only visible enlargement of lymph nodes in Hillus. However, it does not rule out the appearance of infiltrates on the lungs. If the results of your chest X-ray at the age of 8 years look a picture of spots on the lung infiltrates, it will show TB marks after recovery, in the form of fibrosis or calcification, but this is also not always the case, if treatment is done quickly at that time. You should consult directly with a Lung Doctor.


Some tips that you can do to prevent the transmission of tuberculosis, include using a mask when in a crowded place, when interacting with people with TB, and diligently washing hands with soap. Thus, hopefully useful.
