Ca TB scars cause lung cancer even if non- smoker?

Rarely. Scar carcinoma can occur, but is extremely rare and more often talked about than actually seen.
Yes, but very rarely. Quit worrying about it. Otherwise you will become a hypochondriac very soon.

Cannot say no. While there have been studies associating an increased risk of certain lung cancers in people with a history of tuberculosis, there is no proof that the infection causes cancer. Correlation is not the same as causation. So i can't say no, but i can't say yes either! Read more...

How can old TB scars cause lung cancer in non smoker?

They do not but. Cancer develops when immunity surveillance decreases by age, infections and genetic alterations..... Etiology of lung cancer in non- smokers is unclear but genetic alteration is largely to blame. Air pollution and second- and third- hand smoking could play a part. Tb scar in the lung could be a milieu or area for developing cancer to nest in....But, this is very rare. Thank you. Read more...

My chest xray showed--right upper midzonal consolidation is seen with a fibrotic element. Is it TB scar? Could it cause lung cancer. Doctor please answer.

Abnormal Xray. I cannot say without seeing the xray. However, "fibrotic" implies scarring. If you have history of tb, it can be from that, or any prior infection. Would not hurt to keep an eye on it, as TB can recur. Tb does not cause lung cancer, nor does scarring. If the scarring is from smoking however, that does cause cancer without doubt! if you do smoke, at your age you have time to heal if you quit. Read more...

Hi doctor, m cured frm TB bt TB left scars. Can I get lung cancer/any other disease bcz of TB scars? 22 year old female. I don't smoke. Plz reply me.

Don't worry. We've both been cured of TB and that's a good thing. The tiny statistical cancer risk that these old scars pose (and not everybody believe they even do) isn't something we can do anything about. You can't remove the scar, and nowadays it's not considered even worth getting radiation to look for it. Just be grateful that TB is now manageable. Best wishes. Read more...
Unlikely. Just having scar tissue does not make you more likely to develop lung cancer, as long as you don't have other risk factors. Since you are not a smoker, the big one is off the list. You should have an x-ray periodically just for follow-up, but not more than every 3-5 years. Read more...
