Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Untreated Tuberculosis is a dangerous disease.
It can kill / it can maim / it can affect every part of the body including the bone, brain, lung, heart and so on - nothing can escape the spread / if open, it will spread to all contacts
Yet with modern treatment, it can be cured.
Failure to get treated is equal to suicide - slow but sure / take him to a specialist.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Hi welcome to Healthcare magic forum. If it is really T.B.gland diagnised by needle biopsy or excession biopsy , he must use full course of anti tb drugs , as there may be a spread of infection from the glands to the other tissues like chest, the most commen site, bones, intestines, or brain all these if it is confirmed only.
If it is not confirmed , it could be due to any other cause like head lice, boils in the head, throat infection etc.
Convince him showing this reply to him. The treat ment also is not combursom it can be as easy as he want, if he dont want to have injections he can avoid them, there are combination packs to select according to his choice.
Wishing that he will be convinced with this answer, i thank you for calling.
