Opacity in right upper lung

My today's X-Ray says Opacity in the upper right lung. I have no feelings such as: feverish, coughing with blood, vomiting, weight loss, fatigue, breathing problem, chest pain and no other symptom.
The only thing I have is very small amount of coughing with very small amount of cough which is again not very frequent in a day. My doctor said it is TB but can it be anything else other than TB?
Do you think If I test Sputum Culture now, TB Bactria can be found there?

I can't an want to be clear I am not arguing with your doctor.  I happily have zero experience with TB.

However, I think it reasonable to ask your doctor about the benefit of getting
a CT scan which show more details than does the Xray, imo.  

I now nothing about the benefits of the Sputum Culture.. so no comment on that at all.
