I've been diagnosed with tuberculosis early this year. I'm done with the treatment for 6 months, but I'm still worried because the lump on my neck is still there.

I am 24 year old guy. There were no symptoms of cough for three days. I was under pressure since July 2012, so my lifestyle is irregular. It is my nature to feel a fever when I'm under pressure. This time, I had a fever, and after three days felt chest pain. I went to the doctor for the chest pain, who ordered an X-ray. The doctor showed me cavities in the image. Then I started coughing up sputum. I had other tests, like a CT scan fiberoptic bronchoscopy, which showed the presence of a few Candida cells. The doctor told me to take TB medicine.
