In brief: Yes

15 years back did you have prophylaxis treatment or regular triple med treatment? You should periodically see your doctor if you start having TB symptoms again.
. Also parenchymal lesion in both lungs means latent tb. Please see infectious disease doctor in your area.

In brief: Yes,

With a history of tb, you need to make sure you were adequately treated.
If you were not treated/ or not treated fully, years later the TB could reactivate and cause further health issues. In addition you could be a risk to other people.
