Default Calling all experts...Miller, Cohen, Humpries

Hello everyone.
I wonder if anybody can offer some light about this. What is the
criterion used by CIC to reject an applicant on "medical grounds." Are
they very picky when it comes to selecting immigrants (i.e. perfect
health, no previous surgery or treatments) or do they limit their
criteria to VERY serious illnesses, such as cancer, HIV, Tuberculosis,
etc? I have a few friends who are going through the same painful
immigration process and my girlfriend's husband had a chest X-ray that
revealed some very old "lung scars" due to unknown reasons. He is
seemingly healthy, a non-smoker, and has never had any respiratory
problems, thus this results are quite surprising. Now he has to
undergone further tests to verify that he does not suffer from any
serious illness. Will this be a problem at all? If the tests come back
clear, might CIC still reject him for medical reasons?
Thanks for your feedback.

He is probably undergoing tests for TB. These take about 2-3 months to do.
If they are clear there should be no problem.
