Thickening Of The Hilum Area Based On X-ray Results?
I am 29 years old woman. Last month I did a routine health test at Prodia, one of my X-ray results showed a thickening in the right hilum area r nImpression: Hilar Dextra lymphadenopathy r nI had no complaints whatsoever but I had a fever and a lump appeared near back. But the lump is gone. R n Is the lymphadenopathy in the lung dangerous? I wonder what is the cause? R nIs there any indication of glandular TB? R nI have no stones or high fever. Thank you
X-ray is an examination that is used to help support the diagnosis. Hilus is a part of the entry and exit of blood vessels in the respiratory tract. From the results of your examination, the thickened hilum can be caused by various causes, for example due to lymphadenopathy. Hilar lymphadenopathy is an enlargement of the lymph nodes in the hilum, which can be caused by causes such as:
one of the causes that can cause hilar lymphadenopathy is TB infection. TB infection can occur in both the lungs or other organs such as lymph nodes. TB infection in the lymph nodes can not cause symptoms such as cough. TB gland infections can cause fever, weight loss, weakness, fatigue. If indeed the situation that you experience is caused by TB infection, then treatment is required to use anti-TB drugs within a certain period of time, yes. Tuberculosis lymphadenopathy is not a dangerous thing if treated properly.
Therefore, to determine the right therapy for you, then you should check directly to a specialist in internal medicine, so the doctor can examine your physical condition directly and see the results of your x-ray, yes.
