I am 25 years old I have lymph node tuberculosis

Patient

Q: I am 25 years old. I have lymph node tuberculosis. There is a lymphoned swell of about 2.5*3 cm size on right side of my neck just above the collarbone. I am taking 2 forecox tablets in the morning and 1 Matilda in the evening from 2 months. My physician has suggested removal of the lymph node as it has not decreased in size. Is it safe to have it removed through surgery? Or is there any other method to have it removed. Please suggest.

Warm regards
Anjum
