My father is having infection in the lungs. He was suggested by the docter to have chest xray. In chest xray there was white area in lower side of right lung. The docter diagnosed him with pneumonia. However, after one week he again had his chest xray in which the infection appeared of same kind and nature. Further, his sputum AFB test also came positive and no TB was found. The docter then suggested to have CT scan to have a detailed look as what kind of infection it is. Now after the results of CT scan he has suggested that it is TB only and will take 6 months to cure comoletely. My question is what kind of TB can this be and is it conpletely curable. My father is having little breathlessness, little cough, weakness in body as symptoms. There was no blood in cough. Please help.
