Hello Nr Nageeb Mehdi
Thanks for posting your query on HCM
The investigations that you have mentioned are:
Chief complaint: Cough
and right sided chest pain
Mantaux test: Negative
Sputum for AFB: Negative
CT chest: Soft tissue
growth in upper lobe in upper lobe
On the basis of this investigation, tuberculosis
is less likely. Infact CT shows a soft tissue growth in upper lobe of right lung. This is most likely pathology and not tuberculosis.Ultrasound
guided FNAC/ biopsy
is indicated for exact diagnosis.
If you want to get the investigations in India, then you can visit the nearest city ie Kolkatta but you can go almost any other city Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Ahmefabad, Lucknow etc as this facility is available in all apex hospitals all over the country.
Where you want to go is per your convinience.
However, the mass appears appears to be a growth so I advise you to move to cancer hospital like Tata memorial centre where all your requirements will be met under one roof. Tata memorial Center is in Kolkatta and Mumbai.
Thanks and take care
