R nTaking the drug for 6 months the lump still didn’t go away, so I added another 3 months until December 2018. r n Often pain, not too sick
Hello Bety, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
First of all I want to confirm first, whether the lump that is still there until now is in the breast or in other places (armpits or neck or other lymph node sites)?
Basically the breast and lymph nodes are different tissues. If the lump you are still feeling right now is in your breasts, chances are that the tuberculosis you are experiencing is not glandular tuberculosis but breast tuberculosis. The abscess that you have when you stop breastfeeding is likely to be breast tuberculosis and not a normal breast abscess (which often occurs because milk is not being passed or a blockage in the flow of milk). If the lump you still feel is in another place, chances are you are suffering from 2 different things.
In the case of tuberculosis infection, either in the breast or glandular TB, the recommended treatment is the administration of antituberculosis drugs for at least 6 months. In breast TB, if there is still an abscess or there are residual lesions (lumps still remain after treatment is finished), surgery can be done to remove the lump.
For now, you should continue with the treatment recommended by your doctor. If indeed after the end of treatment the lump is still there, consult your doctor about the possibility of surgery to remove the lump.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
