Minimal PTB,Left Upper Lobe of Undetermined Activity. What does it mean?

Hi I m 23 years old,I don t have any history of PTB,but when I got my Pre employment Exam Result ,this July 22,2011 It shows PTB left upper Lobe . I m quite confused because during my medical I have fever & flu .Then our HR told me to leave to get a second opinion with other clinics,and cure it if ever,then after a week of my last medical. Doctor from another clinic advise me to have Apicolordotic Exam instead of Chest Xray and the result is There are minimal fibrohazed densities in the left upper lobe . Impression: Minimal PTB,Left Upper Lobe of Undetermined Activity. What does it mean? I don t want to loose my job..Can this affect my pre employment Examination? Am I not considered fit to work? Please advice ...Thank so much...

I think u need to undergo few more tests before they label u as having pulmonary Tuberculosis.
Densities on Xray or digital scan cannot determine whether those densities r due to activ TB now or healed scars from past.u can undergo TB PCR or other blood tests n sputum AFB test n hrCT to diagnose ur condition fully.even if u suffer from TB it is completely curable n if u r not found to hav activ or open contagious form they shuldnt take the job from u.
