  3. yes it can be cure just read this.......In more than nine of out of ten patients, tuberculosis can be cured with appropriate treatment. Treatment for tuberculosis usually combines several different antibiotic drugs that are given for at least six months, sometimes for as long as 12 months.

    A tuberculosis cure relies on close cooperation between the patient and doctor and other healthcare workers in order to make sure that the right amount of medicine is taken for the right amount of time. If too little medicine is taken, or the right amount is taken for a shorter period of time, a cure is less likely. Furthermore, there is a greater chance a person will develop drug-resistant TB, a condition that is more difficult to cure.
