Yesterday I found out that he has been hospitalized and having test ran to confirm/ruleout either Cancer or TB I have two small children 1 & 2 yo should I be concerned?
Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query. These symptoms can be sign of various diseases including tumors or tbc,but also it can be chronic bronchiits, copd, pneumonia, mouth ulcer or throat lesions. But maliganncy and tbc must be ruled out first. his signs are not very promising but further tests must be done to verify exact diagnosis and then it can be treated. Wish you good health. Regards-
