Can a person have tuberculosis on testicles ?

Most probably. Prior to hospital confinement, my father complained that his testicles were bigger than the usual. He has been diagnosed with miliary tb and according to the doctor, aside from the lungs, it has spread in the adrenal glands and colon. His testicles became smaller but there is a mass. Doctors are hesitant to do surgery due to his old age. He was just placed on medication. Lisa, Philippines —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:49, 26 December 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I think you can have tuberculosis on just about any part of your body. Alex.tan 23:47, 12 January 2006 (UTC)[reply]
It can become disseminated systemically (through the entire body), damaging nearly any organ.Donaldal 04:23, 24 January 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Heart, muscles, pancreas and thyroid are rarely attacked by TB, but all others parts of body can be damaged. --Al-Bargit 19:02, 16 February 2007 (UTC)[reply]
I am researching an ancestor who died of tubercular peritonitus, which I understand is an abdominal condition. How does the disease spread to this part of the body? Was this a common illness at that time (late nineteenth century). Thanks. 03:15, 7 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Miliary tuberculosis can be spread through the blood if the original infection in the lung reaches a pulmonary artery or the lymphatic system (see the article on miliary TB). Once it's in the blood it can spread pretty much anywhere. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jmugele (talkcontribs) 23:59, 23 September 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for that information. 21:40, 29 October 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Familial disseminated atypical mycobacterial infection

Or Mendelian Susceptibility to Mycobacterial Disease can anyone expand on this?Jpogi (talk) 07:24, 16 May 2013 (UTC)[reply]

Add: "and brain" ?

Add: "and brain" to "Miliary TB may infect any number of organs, including the lungs, liver, and spleen" ? For consideration and example: "[Thomas] Wolfe was eventually diagnosed with miliary tuberculosis of the brain." ~ JasonCarswell (talk) 01:53, 30 August 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Milary Tuberculosis due to intravenous drug abuse

A somewhat humorous article in a morbid sort of way...
