Hi. I understand your concerns. Undiagnosed effusion are difficult to treat. You will need to undergo a detailed examination. if not tb and cancer other causes needs to be evaluated and a solution found. Usually pleuroscopic biopsy wiki give an answer. Needs evaluated by a team effort of pulmonologist and thoracic surgeons. Hope your questions were answered. Thanks.
