TB is an infection from Mycobacterium tuberculosis. TB can infect various organs such as the lungs, bones, lymph nodes to the brain.
From the situation you are experiencing, a history of pulmonary TB treatment and currently your testicles are swollen and there are lumps maybe it can be caused by an infection of the TB glands. TB can also infect the lymph nodes, whether it is a direct infection or the result of the spread of the lung infection you are currently experiencing. Lymph node infections can occur in the neck, armpits, or lymph nodes around the genitals. Lymph node infection can cause swelling, accompanied by redness and pain.
But apart from that, the situation you are experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
epididymitis/inflammation of the epididymis, abscess, genital area, varicocele, hydrocele, tumor. Therefore, to determine the cause of your condition, you should consult a doctor first so that the doctor can examine your condition further.
