Lump In The Neck After Glandular Surgery?
Doctor, I was diagnosed with glandular TB and had surgery on the left neck 2bulan ago and the biopsy results turned out to be true glandular TB, the administration of OAT drugs had begun to run 1 month but there was a new lump in the right neck. Is that normal in the treatment phase or should surgery be performed again?

The newly formed lump is most likely also a glandular TB. However, it can also be another disease, such as inflammation of the KGB due to non-specific bacteria, KGB tumors, skin abscesses, etc.
Glandular TB is a disease of lymph node infection (KGB) caused by mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria. Patients must undergo treatment using anti-tuberculosis drugs (OAT) for at least 6 months. During treatment, patients will be evaluated once every 2 weeks. Generally, treatment for the first 2 weeks has improved symptoms.
I suggest you should, continue treatment and immediately control with the treating lung specialist. The doctor will evaluate the results of treatments that have been run. Your doctor may also do an OAT sensitivity and resistance test. Next the doctor will decide on the best treatment for your condition. Surgery may not need to be done again, if the clinical course can be known by the doctor.
Meanwhile, pay attention to your nutrition, eat nutritious foods that are high in calories and high in protein. Enough rest. The goal is to be able to help improve your immune system against disease.
Thus hopefully useful.
