X-ray showed suspicious densities are seen in the left apex.Does it mean PTB even if I am a non-smoker leading a healthy lifestyle?
Suspicious densities are seen in the left apex , was the interpretation of my recent x-ray result. I am required to get an apicolordotic view. Could it be that I m positive of PTB if I m a non-smoker, lives a healthy lifestyle, eats only nutritious food, takes vitamins , lives in a clean and constantly disinfected home, uses air cooler at home with ionizer, no cough , no chest discomfort and rarely sick?
MAY R MAY NOT BE TB.INCOMPLETE HISTORY.Y DID U VISIT DOCTOR?XRAY DENSITIES MAY R MAY NOT BE SUGGESTIVE OF TB.IN TB THERE WILL BE WT LOSS,FEVER EVENING RISE,COUGH WITH EXPECTORATION FOR 2 WEEKS,CONTACT HISTORY MAY BE PRESENT.ANY PAST HISTORY OF TB?
