How Long Does The Healing Of Lung Spots In Children 2 Years With Enlarged Glands In The Neck?
Good morning, since my child was born there were several (more than 1) neck lumps in the neck and from the age of 8 months (before the measles vaccine) had been exposed to measles complications by coughing colds, vomiting, diarrhea to being hospitalized. And at the age of 1 year 3 months, I have to be hospitalized again because of fever for more than 1 week, and the results of blood tests showed that my child’s leukocytes reached 15 thousand, so his leukocytes must be lowered so that he did not have fever … even though sometimes there is a fever and not … In 2 years 10 months I consulted with the doctor about the lump in the SPA throat (because before the child, I was weaning and crying continuously until the throat was red and there was a lump) I was afraid there was tonsillitis, then the doctor checked my son’s neck glands too, then my son was advised to have a chest X-ray and it turned out there was a white spot (lung spots) then my child underwent treatment for the spots and glands for 6 months. After 6 months on X-ray the results still have white patches and continued treatment 3 months. Now my child is still doing the treatment, the 8th is left 1 month again. I have consulted for the gland, SpA doctor said that the disappearance of the neck gland is indeed long after the treatment can be 1 year or 2 years new gone … What I want to ask: 1. Is it true that the neck gland will disappear long to 1 year or 2 years after treatment is complete? Are there other actions that should be taken to remove the gland? 3. How does the impact if the gland has not disappeared too? 4. Can the lung spots in my child spread to other children or me? Considering I’m 26 weeks pregnant now. What causes the emergence of these glands? Please respond and thank you in advance because the doctor was willing to help answer my question ..

TB infection is an infection caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosa that enters the body and causes interference with related body systems. TB infection can occur in any part of the body, whether lung, skin, lymph nodes, digestion or bone.
In pulmonary tuberculosis infection in children whether with lymph node swelling complications or not, the diagnosis can be made by sputum examination if it can be collected, radiological examination, or serological examination for tuberculosis. Thus it can be seen the presence of active TB infection in patients.
Regarding the question you asked,
1. swollen lymph nodes due to TB infection can experience several conditions after healing, which can be totally lost, the size of the gland shrinks, or the size of the gland settled. However, what needs to be emphasized even though the size of the permanent gland or the gland does not disappear at all is that the TB infection has been treated and treated according to existing procedures. So that TB germs have disappeared from the body (lungs and lymph nodes) after treatment is declared complete. So it can not be sure when the lump can disappear
2. Even if some glands are still visible after TB treatment is finished, it is advisable to do enough supervision and periodic maintenance, so that it can be seen whether the number of glands increases or size increases again after treatment is stopped. For other treatments, surgery can be done to take this lymph node, but certainly complications or effects of surgery can also occur, such as a healed wound. So that it should be a period of observation and supervision that you can try after being declared cured.
3. aesthetic or appearance effects that may be encountered, for other impacts, no health impacts were found, provided the TB infection was cured and treatment was stopped.
4. Pulmonary TB infection can spread to other family members, so it is advisable to conduct a TB examination for healthy family members to find out whether there is TB transmission to other family members.
5. swelling or enlarged glandular glands may indeed be caused by TB infection as information from your doctor. But other causes can also occur, such as infections of the nasal passages or sinuses.
Therefore, it is necessary to carry out further examinations to evaluate the handling of tuberculosis currently carried out and to continue handling TB according to the pediatrician's plan. Thus, the recovery process is going well and TB infection can be cured.
Thus the info we can convey.
