Minimal PTB. Is it contagious?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Im 32 years old. I don't feel anything strange. didn't get sick. so during our annual physical exam, i was confident. i was shock when i saw the results and it says there's suspicious densities. i had my APE on May 10 but was not able to get the results right away. i only received it June 19. i was adviced to do the apico/APL and then when i got the result yesterday, it says minimal reticulo-hazy densities in the left lung apex. minimal ptb. dr already prescribed meds, i forgot to ask him if it's contagious. is this the same with latent tb since i didn't feel any symptoms?
