Assalammualaikum good afternoon I want to ask after the results of the PA came out I was diagnosed with gland tb. Then the lung doctor told me to check phlegm. What I want to ask is whether it is necessary to check phlegm after the lab results and blood, ultrasound and X-ray examination is done. The problem is I’ve given the sputum thinner medication but the sputum doesn’t come out there is actually forced even pain in the throat

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically, your lymph node PA examination can only diagnose tuberculosis infection in your lymph node only. People who experience tuberculosis infection in lymph nodes are not infrequently also experience tuberculosis infection in the lungs. Your doctor wants to look for the possibility of tuberculosis infection in your lungs. The presence or absence of pulmonary tuberculosis infection will especially be very meaningful if you live in a house with small children or work close to small children. Glandular tuberculosis is not contagious, but pulmonary tuberculosis can be contagious to people around you and especially very contagious to young children.

The following are some things you can do to help expel your phlegm:

 Spit phlegm in the morning when you wake up Take a shower with warm water and breathe warm water vapor from your bath water Boil the water to a boil, remove from the fire, and breathe in the emergent water vapor (be careful because steam can get very hot) If you still can not expel your phlegm, consult your lung doctor again.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
