Worried you may have TB or need to get tested for work? Luckily, tuberculosis testing is conveniently available at MinuteClinic in Buford. There are certain cases in which getting TB testing is critical. The risk of contracting tuberculosis increases for people either living in or traveling to areas with high incidences of tuberculosis, including Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Russia, the Caribbean Islands, and Latin America. If you have recently traveled to any of those areas, it may be in your best interest to come in for testing just to be safe. You may also want to come in for a TB test if you experience any symptoms including a chronic cough lasting over 3 weeks, coughing up blood, chest pain, unexpected weight loss, or night sweats. These are just some of the many symptoms you may experience if you have TB. Put your health first and come into the MinuteClinic at 1950 Buford Highway for testing today.
Tuberculosis (TB) is an infection primarily affecting the lungs. Those with this infection must be on medication for months in order to fight further development of the disease. There are two types of TB – latent TB and Active TB. Latent TB is also known as inactive TB or TB infection. This is when you have the infection but the bacteria are dormant and do not cause symptoms. This type of TB is not contagious; however, it can become active if left untreated. The second type of TB is Active TB. In this state, it is an illness and is likely to be contagious. TB can become active anywhere from weeks to years following the infectious state. Not only can TB affect the lungs, it can also affect other parts of the body including the brain, spine, or kidneys. It is important to get tested to ensure that you are receiving the needed treatment as soon as possible.
TB testing is a two-part test, which requires a follow-up visit within 48 – 72 hours of the initial visit. The first part of the test is the TB test placement, which will take place during your first visit. Prior to administering the test, our staff will review your health history and verify your eligibility for the TB test. The test will then be administered into your forearm by your practitioner if you are eligible. Part two of the test is the TB test reading, which will take place during your second visit to CVS MinuteClinic in Buford, GA. This must occur 2-3 days after your initial visit to have the TST (Tuberculin Skin Test) assessed. From there, the next steps are dependent on the results. Your nurse practitioner or physician assistant will provide you with the needed follow-up recommendations. Compared to urgent care, we’re a great choice for your budget, as you can save 40% or more at MinuteClinic. Come in now and get your TB test without breaking the bank!
