I can't remember if theres actually something bad in the actual test.
All I know is I test pos. for TB yet I am asymptomatic. I needed to be treated with INH and B6 for a whole year because I was in the medical field.
If you test positive you will likely be asked to get a chest xray done. If your Dr. suspects some kind of lung problem ie breathing,coughing, fever,chills etc... this may be why they are looking at a possible TB issue.
Just a guess. All I know is I never have to have the test again because I will always test pos.
