I was diagnosed with tuberculosis in January. Until now, I was in the 6th stage of the month. I was left with an x-ray photo again. In January, I had felt a fever of coughing sweat at night. increase in the neck quite a lot. I asked the doctor when the control was okay. What was the question. -Was tuberculosis is not always hot coughing? -Was it increase in lumps in neck?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Tuberculosis bacteria are bacteria that can infect various organs. The organ most commonly affected by tuberculosis is the lung, but other organs such as lymph nodes, intestines, bones, joints, skin, brain and brain membranes, etc. can also be affected by tuberculosis infections. Symptoms that can be caused of course can vary depending on which organ is affected by the infection. If you experience pulmonary tuberculosis infection, the main symptoms that usually occur are coughing, coughing up blood, shortness of breath, chest pain. Other symptoms that can be found in tuberculosis infections in any organ include fever, night sweats, body weakness, weight loss. Not all of these symptoms must occur in people with tuberculosis.
If all you have is gland tuberculosis, the only symptom that might appear is enlarged lymph nodes. For a diagnosis, a gland biopsy will usually be needed because the symptoms are not too typical. X-ray examination will also be carried out because in general patients with gland tuberculosis also have active pulmonary tuberculosis. In glandular tuberculosis, the treatment is the same as pulmonary tuberculosis. The duration of treatment is the same, which is 6 months. However, one thing that often occurs in patients with gland tuberculosis is the glands that get enlarged or multiply during therapy or post-treatment (referred to as a paradoxical reaction). This condition occurs in about 20% of patients and does not always indicate failure of therapy. As long as you don't feel any symptoms in the enlargement of your gland (no pain or other symptoms of active tuberculosis appear), then no special treatment is needed for this condition. Consult the doctor who treats you if indeed your enlarged glands cause irritation and disturbing symptoms.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
