Medical Check Up On The History Of Gland Tuberculosis?
Hello Tri, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
I help answer your questions sequentially yes.
In principle, the Mantoux test can be used to help diagnose whether a person has TB infection or not, but this test cannot be used to measure how much immunity the body has to TB infection, but can only state how sensitive the body is to the material injected during the Mantoux test done. The results of this examination are also very varied depending on the specific conditions and diseases suffered by someone who carried out the examination. This test can generally be done on all people both suspected of being infected with TB or not, but there are a number of conditions that are recommended not to do this test, namely in the following circumstances: The Mantoux test previously performed showed positive results because repeated examinations will not provide any additional considerations Have ever been exposed to TB disease (both pulmonary TB and extra pulmonary TB) because it will not add additional diagnostic value to Children under 12 weeks Because you have had TB before, then in principle, you do not need to do the Mantoux test, because as has been said before, these results will not show anything because of course you have been exposed to TB germs so that it will definitely cause a positive reaction. If the Mantox test procedure is one of the MCU programs at your place of work, then you should say first to do the doctor who did the examination that you have had TB gland disease some time ago, so your doctor might consider you to undergo another examination to find out if you have TB again now. Also note that the results of the MCU are medically fit not only based on examinations to detect TB, but there are some other considerations that must also be seen based on the results of examinations conducted during the MCU, so whether you will be declared medically fit or not after performing the MCU all depends on the results of these examinations and also the results of considerations of doctors in assessing your condition during the examination. I hope this helps.
