Lung Scar medicication
My daughter,who is 21,is under medication for PTB. I would like to know if her lung scar can be healed.
Hi Doc. I had a tubercolosis 5 years ago and it left a scar on my lungs. I just want to ask if it is possible to remove the scar and have a clear x-ray? Thanks!
Thanks for the query.
Scars on X Ray represent fibrosis which occurs when the lesions of tuberculosis are healing. It is a harmless finding which might reduce slowly over many years.
Unfortunately there is no medicine which can remove the scar. While this will not affect your health, it might be an issue when you undergo medical tests for jobs, visa etc.
Hope this helps
