Pulmonologist 's  Response

Primary infection with TB is usually subclinical and it heals, sometimes with a scar. You may be surprised to know that one third of world's population is infected with TB germs and many of them may show a scar. There is nothing you can do about it.

TB infection means entry of bacteria in the body and an immune response developing to it. It does not necessary mean suffering from the active disease. So do not misunderstand.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
you should not worry about removing the scar because there are no specific methods to do so. Please get evaluated and no other exact cause of the finding. You may need to get CT scan done.
I advise you to visit your pulmonologist and get evaluated thoroughly.
However I think a finding which is not symptomatically related to you should not be considered a criteria to make you unfit for the medical examination.but still the rules of various organizations are different.
Hope I answered your question.
Take care
