Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
Look, to start anti tubercular drug, clinical suspicion is enough. If your clinical profile is not supporting a diagnosis of tuberculosis, then some investigations are important.

So, the decision is upto the treating doctor.

Lastly, the nature of lymph node cannot support a diagnosis of tuberculosis.
