Hello, Deswita Sari. Thank you for the questions submitted to HealthReplies.com We can understand the concern you feel.
Tuberculosis (TB / TB) is a disease caused by infection with the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The most common location for this bacterial infection is the lung, but the infection can also affect almost all organs, including lymph nodes. A common symptom of glandular TB (TB lymphadenitis) is enlarged lymph nodes. Generally, the glands most commonly affected are lymph nodes in the neck area. The accompanying symptoms include fever that is not too high, weakness, aches, and weight loss.
If the diagnosis of glandular TB has been established by a doctor, the patient needs to undergo TB treatment so that the infection does not spread. This treatment is a combination of anti-TB drugs that need to be given every day regularly for 6 months. If this treatment is carried out regularly to complete, the lump will shrink and disappear and TB disease can be cured. Because lymphadenitis TB is associated with pulmonary TB and TB germs can be transmitted through sputum sparks in the air, it is advisable to check family members who live at home to the doctor to identify whether transmission has occurred. Do not hesitate to consult with your treating doctor about TB treatment.
