does thyroid nodule is an indicator of hiv?

No.: Development of a thyroid nodule is not an indicator of HIV infection. Thyroid nodules are common in adults, and there is no association between having a nodular thyroid gland and HIV infection. It would be "possible" to have both a thyroid nodule and HIV infection, but these two things are not causally related. If you are concerned about HIV for other reasons, then please be tested.

No: Hiv is not a cause of vocal nodules. Vocal nodules are most often due to voice misuse or abuse, like screaming or yelling.
