TPHA is a serological test for syphilis. It can remain positive after the disease cure. You can go for VDRL test for the confirmation of the disease as it becomes negative after disease cure.
There is no need to worry about as It is totally curable disease.

I suggest you to visit your doctor for retest this disease with other diagnostic tools.

I hope i have answered your query.
