HI jassiitech
Tuberculosis usually heals by fibrosis and in due course of time calcify...
you told that you have taken 9 months of treatment and has been declared cure by sputum for microscopy....
the lesion you told may be a healed tubercular lesion....

Don't worry until you are off symptoms like cough ,weight loss, evening rise of temperature, night sweats, blood in cough etc...

best wishes and thanks for coming to HCM
