i had latent TB 15 yrs ago, and was treated. i had a big bump on my neck at that time(probably a macrophage), its still present but its greatly reduced in size now, and i dont have any problems now. My question is that - DO I NEED TO get it surgically removed?? DOES it pose ANY RISK of TB in the future??
- Thanks for your responses in advance.
