1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

If at the end of treatment, your lungs have a scar in the form of a cavity, you can get a form of aspergillosis called aspergilloma.
Presence of aspergillus in the lungs does not always mean infection or aspergillosis.

In brief: Not really

Get the TB treated first have follow ups with your lung specialist to prevent aspergillosis or have it treated early.
