Hello, Van Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by infection with the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Lung is the most common location of this bacterial infection, but the infection can also affect almost all organs, including the lymph nodes. Symptoms that are commonly experienced by patients with glandular TB (TB lymphadenitis) are enlarged lymph nodes. Usually the glands most commonly affected are lymph nodes in the neck region. Other symptoms that often accompany include: fever that is not too high, weakness, aches, and weight loss.
If the diagnosis of glandular TB has been established by a doctor, the patient needs to undergo TB treatment so that the disease does not spread and does not worsen. Treatment of glandular TB is a combination of anti-TB drugs that need to be taken daily for 6 months. If this treatment is carried out regularly until it is complete, the lumps can shrink and disappear and TB disease can be cured. Lymphadenitis TB is associated with pulmonary TB and TB germs can be transmitted through sputum sparks in the air so it is also advisable to check family members who live at home to the doctor to identify whether transmission has occurred. Do not hesitate to consult with your treating doctor about TB treatment.
