I have had a cough and cold for five days; I have been diagnosed with endobronchial TB. Usually, if there is more dust and pollution, my lungs will be affected. This makes me cough badly I also have a sore throat pain but it is reduced now. What should I do? Please help.
I suggest you get a sputum test for TB (tuberculosis), sputum AFB (acid-fast bacillus). If this is positive, it is 100% TB. If this sputum test is negative, get bronchoscopy and BAL (Bronchoalveolar lavage) analysis to rule out TB. I hope this helps.
