Hello.... If you have cough with sputum ,sputum examination helps in determining whether you have active tuberculosis or not.... Otherwise get chest x ray and blood culture ,you should stop smoking completely ... Tb can cause plural effusion which can cause chest pain, consult pulmonologist or general physician.
