Do you not think that tuberculosis is old disease?
A little less than 20,000 a year patients still generate "tuberculosis" in every whole country, and tuberculosis develops in around 130 people every year in Saga.
Air is generally transmitted, and tuberculosis increases in the inside of the lungs and often presents symptoms such as a cough, sputum, dyspnea, but may have an influence on kidney, bone except the lungs, whole body including brain.
In addition, tuberculosis does not necessarily develop, but there are two when it develops when it is from several months to around two years and develops after being infected after having passed dozens of years.
Most of patients whom tuberculosis develops in are elderly people considered to have been infected with tubercle bacillus several decades ago, but attention is necessary now as it may develop in infection even if it is young generation.
A cough to continue more than two weeks may be tuberculosis
It is said that symptom like cold such as a cough and sputum, physical tiredness, fever appears, and discovery may be late for tuberculosis.
When a cough is prolonged, (a cough to continue more than two weeks) will have a medical examination early.
In addition, we will consult medical institution when drop of appetite and physical tiredness, slight fever continue, and there is poor physical condition as clear symptoms such as a cough may not come out in elderly people.
If a cough comes out, let's put mask
Tubercle bacillus splashes for a cough and sneezing of tuberculosis patient, and tuberculosis is transmitted as people in circumference breathe that in.
If a cough comes out, we put mask and will have a medical examination early.
