Tuberculosis

I Was Diagnosed in My Chest Xray Minimal PTB

11/16/2009

Question:

I was diagnosed in my chest X-ray with minimal ptb. Can I undergo an operation, total hysterectomy?

Answer:

Thank you for visiting NetWellness. On this site, NetWellness experts try to answer general questions about health. There is not sufficient information provided to answer the question. I am not sure what 'minimal PTB' is. Is it latent TB infection or previously treated active TB? You should refer to your primary care doctor for evaluation of the chest x-ray and to have your questions answered. Best wishes.
