Please note I am far from a doctor and googled this for you. Ptb is pulmonary tuberculosis minimal meaning one lung or part of lung. I would confirm with your doctor as they will know the diagnosis and any details regarding your specific case.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament. Tuberculosis, or TB, is an infectious bacterial disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, which most commonly affects the lungs. It has an increased predilection for the apical portion of the lungs. It heals by fibrosis. And this fibrosis persists, so it visible on consequent X rays also. So, don't worry, it is an old healed lesion.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
