HI

Greetings from Dr.Divakara.P
Thanks for posting your query.

Well I feel there is a definite relevance between your TB and Lymph nodes . It could be just a reaction to your TB in lungs or it could be TB in your Lymph nodes itself.

But the treatment is same for both. Its Anti tubercular therapy ( ATT ). I hope you have been started on ATT for your lung TB , with ATT your lung TB and enlarged lymph nodes will resolve gradually.

If still not started on ATT kindly get it started.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarifications feel free to ask.
