How can tuberculosis be treated?

Sir, I am 22 and my inferirior cervical nodes(3 in no.) Are swallow from last 2 years. I have FNAC check up which showed tuberculosis infection. So I got treatment of 6 month completed. Then again biopsy cheukup after 10 months of first chekup it show nothing. There were no sign og malignant or infection. So i keep homeopathic treatment but These lymph node are still of size and even some time feels like one of the smallest one is incresing its size. Please sir suggest me what should I do now.

If you had the recommended 4 drug regime , then 6 months of treatment is enough in most people. The negative biopsy also suggests the same. There is no need for homeopathy.
If you had homeopathy treatment instead of the modern medicine from the beginning then it may not be curative.
If the lymph nodes have not decreased in size or if one is increasing in size, it would be better to have an excision biopsy.
Do get back to me if you have further queries.
