The Results Of Chest X-ray Examination In A History Of Pulmonary TB Patients?
Afternoon…. I want to ask 4 years ago I got spots on my lungs the doctor said TB but still symptoms and I have been outpatient for 6 months…and thank God I’ve recovered but one week ago I took the medical results unfit says the disease is classified as lung… I’m confused that it says it’s healed but it’s still there.
Hi Viellanika, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Pulmonary classification is a buildup of calcium in lung tissue that causes calcification of lung tissue. The picture of pulmonary calcifications on lung X-rays is obtained due to the formation of granuloma tissue from healing an infection in the lungs, for example due to tuberculosis or pulmonary tuberculosis, histoplasmosis, silicosis, previous history of sarcoidosis. In general, the picture of pulmonary calcifications, if no other picture is found is a picture of a former and inactive TB, in this condition there is no need for treatment or treatment because it is inactive. The appearance of pulmonary calcifications will not disappear for life, but if there is an active lesion in the form of infiltrates, effusions or cavities, it means that pulmonary TB is still active, then it must be treated further or treated again.
If there are no symptoms of cough, fever that goes up and down, or weight loss, you don't need to worry, but it would be better for you to consult your X-ray results and your current condition to an internal medicine specialist or pulmonary specialist. the doctor will do a physical examination on you, blood tests.
