Hello Mr. Khan
Thank you for getting in touch with us. From what I make out, your friend has found out by chance that there is a scar in his lungs. I would like to tell you that TB is not the only cause of scarring of the lungs. This needs a thorough and detailed examination. I would recommend your friend to get in touch with a Doctor immediately and seek consultation. If he has any old Chest X-Ray with him, that can prove to be beneficial as the Doctor can compare both X-Ray's and see if the scarring appeared lately or has been present for sometime. Hope this helped.

thanks for the enquery
thanks for choosing HCM
hello, Mr. T. KHAN
there is no medicine available to wipe out the scars from lung
but u have to make query why there is may need some investigation if required
will u kindly post the chest x-ray images on HCM then it ll be easier for me to make comment on that
scar or spot on chest x-ray may occur due to previous diseases in chest
may be a previous tuberculosis, may be a healed lung lesion from sarcoidosis, may be from a lung tumor either a malignant or benign or previous non-resolving or partially treated pneumonia
thank u
