Hi there I understand your concern and feeling towards your father health condition.... Since the reports are suggestive of fibronodular Koch its necessary to subject him to confirmatory diagnosis... Treatment is DOTS therapy under RNTCP given free of cost from government of India in government institutions and health facilities... I would suggest you to consult nearest pulmonologist they will do the needful.
