Hiv Swollen Lymph Nodes Pictures
Does HIV cause 3 mild swollen lymph nodes in one side of the neck? No other nodes are swollen in all my body? I tested negative!
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more
Possibly...: Acute retroviral syndrome (ARS, i.e. symptoms from a new HIV infection) can include enlarged lymph nodes. However, that''s usually not the only symptom -- usually also sore throat, fever, skin rash. The vast majority of people with newly enlarged lymph nodes do not have HIV. Check with your doctor and/or get tested for HIV if exposed or concerned. ...Read more
Multiple HIV negative tests tell 7 months from last exposure, but still many small swollen lymph nodes in neck that are chronic. Im a smoker ?
Not HIV: The HIV blood tests are among the most accurate diagnostic tests ever developed, for any medical condition. If enough time has passed since the last possible exposure (usually only 6 weeks for the modern, standard HIV tests), a negative results always overrules symptoms and exposure history. And of course many minor conditions cause small lymph nodes like this. For sure it's not HIV. Stop testing. ...Read more
Tested neg for HIV at 4 weeks, now 6 months later I have swollen lymph nodes in my neck that mildly hurt when touched. Do I have hiv? Partner testd ng
Impossible: First we would never, ever guess about HIV. Having swollen lymph nodes does not in any way diagnose one as being HIV positive. Second, you did not test correctly for HIV and the test you report was a complete and absolutely invalid test. It was done two months too soon. Because of this you must do another HIV test. At six months the results will be valid. ...Read more

Can you explain?: All swollen lymph nodes are lymps, though they may be deep and you can't feel them. And every male in his twenties, like you, has at least one or two palpable lymph nodes somewhere in the neck. Please do yourself a major favor right now, and go back to your physician and ask to be screened for HIV. Worrying like this is draining you of energy you need for other things. Best wishes. ...Read more

All ARS symptoms after unprotected sex. Negative HIV RNA & 4th gen at 1 yr Swollen lymph nodes & abn CBC. What testing can be done for HIV type N & P?
For sure not HIV: First, "all ARS symptoms" is meaningless. Innumerable medical conditions have identical symptoms as ARS, most of them minor and not worrisome. Second, the HIV tests are far more reliable than symptoms in determining whether or not someone has HIV. Your tests are valid for all HIV types, including N and P, and prove your symptoms are due to something other than ARS. Believe it and move on. Gd luck! ...Read more
What could be other reason for swollen lymph nodes in arms, other than hiv, flu or being hurt. Please advise?
Hello,1 week ago I had unprotected sex, and now I'm experiencing swollen lymph nodes in my arm. Can this be due to some Std like HIV?
No: Unprotected sex is only a problem if the male partner is uncircumcised. Here the foreskin can harbor both HPV and HIV. In either instance developing the infectious process could take months. With HPV in situ CA of cervix would develop and nodes in axilla would not be involved. With HIV the partner would almost have to know of his problem and the eventual disease becomes systemic. ...Read more

Doctor, how much lymph nodes swell and where are their location in acute retroviral syndrome? ?Is one swollen lymph node point to HIV after safe sex?
HIV unlikely: To have HIV transmission there must be fluid transfer from one person to the next. If you had safe sex HIV would be very unlikely. Swollen lymph nodes can be seen in a large number of viral illnesses as well as with bacterial infections. See you doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If none of the lymph nodes enlarge in the body. No generalized lymphadenopathy, is there a chance of hiv?Maybe headache. H protective safe sex to add.
Yes: Hiv can be present without any overt signs and symptoms until the profound immune suppression creates opportunistic infections or tumors. If you think there is any chance that you may have been infected please get tested. The earlier the diagnosis is made and treatment begun, the better the outcome. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
