Dear Scott

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

Tuberculosis is curable. Treatment depends on a multitude of factors and usually lasts 6 months. The disease is life threathening and if you suspect that you have this disease, you should immediately consult your GP, in order to have a chest x-ray and sputem analysis done.

Kind regards
