How does my doctor know I have histoplasmosis?
Your doctor can test your blood or urine for histoplasmosis. He or she can also take a sample of tissue for testing. Chest X-rays and computerized tomography (CT) scans are helpful for detecting inflammation in the lungs, but your doctor can't be sure you have histoplasmosis just by looking at an X-ray or a CT scan.
