Diagnosis of an aspergilloma or invasive aspergillosis can be difficult as the symptoms mimic other kinds of lung infection. This fungus is commonly found in all environments but difficult to distinguish from certain other moulds under the microscope. Doctors may generally prescribe a biopsy to sample and test lung tissue. Other tests may involve blood tests to test the fungus molecules, a chest X-ray, a CT scan of the lungs and a sputum stain and culture to examine the bronchial mucus.
If detected at the early stage, the infection can be easily treated with the help of medications. As per an expert, the treatment for aspergillosis is the same as black and white fungus. But if the infection spreads to the other parts of the body, surgery is the only option available.
