Lymph node tuberculosis
I am undergoing treatment for lymph node tuberculosis and it has been 5 months I am taking DOTS medicines. My lymph node has become small now but it is not completely gone and only 1 month treatment is left so what test I have to take to make sure that my tb is gone completely or should I just stop taking medicines without any test once the course is completed.

Do not stop the medication at any cost. Please take the full course of the medications. After the completion of course you can take a sputum test for cbnaat and afb.

Never stop TB treatment in between. As later it may become drug resistant. Always complete the full course of medication. For Sputum AFB and CBNAAT after 1 month
