I Was Diagnosed in My Chest Xray Minimal PTB
I was diagnosed in my chest X-ray with minimal ptb. Can I undergo an operation, total hysterectomy?
Thank you for visiting NetWellness. On this site, NetWellness experts try to answer general questions about health. There is not sufficient information provided to answer the question. I am not sure what 'minimal PTB' is. Is it latent TB infection or previously treated active TB? You should refer to your primary care doctor for evaluation of the chest x-ray and to have your questions answered. Best wishes.
