Mantoux Test In Bangalore

Mantoux Test In Bangalore

A TB test in Bangalore, also known as the Mantoux test in Bangalore, is a skin test that helps doctors diagnose a severe disease called tuberculosis. The main idea behind this test is to monitor the skin reactions after injecting a particular agent called tuberculin into the skin of the suspected patient.

Doctors usually directly prescribe this test when they suspect a possibility of this lung infection which can spread throughout the body if not treated in time. This test is also essential as, at times, the bacteria behind tuberculosis become dormant and show no symptoms for detection.

About Mantoux Test

Why is the Mantoux test done?

The TB test in Bangalore also known as the Mantoux test is primarily done to identify the possible infection of tuberculosis for a person. The main intention is to monitor the skin reaction post the insertion of a particular element into the bloodstream. Additionally, if you have symptoms like fever, loss of appetite, painful breathing or coughing, night sweats, sudden weight loss, persistent cough, and blood in cough, you can take the test to get the right diagnosis from medical professionals.

Doctors all around the world recommend patients be on the lookout for such symptoms and get tested as soon as possible to avoid spreading the disease further all over the body and causing more discomfort.

What does the Mantoux test measure?

A Mantoux test at home or a TB test in Bangalore, all are developed to detect the possibility of the spread of the disease tuberculosis in a patient’s body.

  • Mantoux test measures the probability by observing whether a patient’s immune system has developed a dedicated response to the bacteria that is the reason behind the spread of TB in the body. The bacteria behind tuberculosis is called Mycobacterium tuberculosis which causes a sensitive skin reaction when it comes in contact with tuberculin.
  • Additionally, even though a test result might come out to be negative, it does not rule out the possibility of tuberculosis for a patient and the doctor might suggest the testing for more accurate results.
  • Moreover, even if a patient is exposed to the tuberculosis-causing bacteria, he/she might not develop symptoms and get positive results until the incubation period of a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 12 weeks is over.
Risk/side effects of Mantoux test

If you are prescribed a TB test in Bangalore and you are worried about the potential side effects or risks involved, you need to know the best and worst-case scenarios. For most people

  • There is only a minimal risk involved which is a reaction post sample collection which can include redness or swelling around the arm.
  • Additionally, any other allergic reactions stand the lowest possibility, making it a risk-free test.
  • Some patients might also feel dizzy or lightheaded right after the test is conducted but it is not a common side-effect.

Ms Sujata arrived on time and was very polite and caring throughout the process. Actually there was a mistake on my part where I couldn't attend her calls because I was not well and i feel asleep bcoz of my medicines. I had scheduled an appointment for my mother but Ms Sujata somehow reached my address by asking my neighbours. Such a lovely girl, and also the collection process was really smooth. Would absolutely recommend everyone to check out their services
