The gold standard diagnosis for Tuberculosis of Lungs is examination of sputum. But you have no cough or sputum.
In the initial stage of Tuerculosis of Lungs or when a person has good immunity, there may not be not be cough or fever.
There is no proper diagnostic test for checking whether you really have Tuberculosis. But still you may get an CT / MRI scan of lungs done.
Kindly give the report of CT / MRI Scan.
