I want to ask.. I’m 22, I’m marriedrnDoc. Yesterday, I went to the health center because there was a lump on the back of the head, right at the nape of the head, on the right side of the back of the head. . I went for treatment and then I said I had pain in the lump but it doesn’t hurt and the lump hasn’t gone away for 2 years, then the doctor who examined me said, did I have TB complaints, I said no, if there was vaginal discharge, I answered yes but it didn’t smell like it was itching just sometimes. I was even ordered to do a blood ESR test, X-ray, and a VCT test. And what makes me dizzy and uncomfortable is the VCT test, does it have anything to do with all my complaints? Please explain, I’m really stressed because I waited too long for the results of the VCT
