I am still doing pre-requisites for the nursing school. Today I saw my medical examination results and get worried.
Chest X ray shows:
Calcified Granuloma Parahilar Region due to old healed inflammatory process
Radiologically, no evidence of active pulmonary pathology
Both costophrenic sulct appear intact
About 10 years ago, I had two close friends who got TB, I went to visit them often when they were sick. Maybe that was how I got affected.
But I never felt any sympotom. It all cured by myself. Before the medical exam, I did not even know I was affected and my lungs have calcified points.
When apply for the nursing school, and later on to nursing jobs, will this cause any problem? for example, any limitations on the job I can apply for?
When I am getting older and weaker, will this TB in my lungs come back and becomes active?
Thanks for any advice.
