Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Tuberculosis is a chronic lung infection where it is an infection by Mycobacterium Tuberculosis which usually attacks the lungs and causes long-term lung damage. To enforce this direction, a doctor will usually do a checkup first, starting from asking for symptoms of a physical examination and supporting measures such as x-rays, sputum examination and or blood. So that afterwards the appropriate diagnosis can be made.
Related to this the main thing is the treatment for the infection, which is antibiotic treatment which is usually needed in the long run. Regarding the need for aspirated fluids or not, there will be special considerations from lung specialists that can be seen from the volume, perceived symptoms, the condition of the accumulated fluids because this procedure also has several risks such as
Air embolism or release of air
