can tuberculosis neck lymphadenitis become active or continue to spread to other organs of the body during treatment ?

TB stays put: Tuberculosis generally will not spread to other organ systems during treatment, as long as you are infected with a strain that is sensitive to the medications that have been prescribed. If your neck mass becomes larger, if other masses appear, or if you have persistent fevers, respiratory symptoms or weight loss, I would consult with your tuberculosis doctor.
