Hello Sudhakar and thanks for the query
TMT positive indicates Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) but their are 50-50 chances of getting a diseases in your case. TMT can be false positive but we can not take chance in heart issue. A single ignorance can result in big trouble. Yes you can go for repeat TMT but I don't think it helps you. Angiography is 100% surety test for CAD and it is a short procedure that will take about 10-15 but you may have to stay in hospital for 3-4 hrs.
The risk factor for CAD are Family History, Male, Age above 40, Obesity, High Cholesterol(+ve in you), Stress, Smoking, Alcohol, Diabetes and Hypertension. You can count risk factor present in you. It is better to be preventive in heart block disease than the cure.
Hope you got your answer.
Best Wishes
