Are swollen lymph nodes a sure sign of hiv infection?

Could be...

Hiv
....but also of many other serious and non-serious medical conditions. If you have persistently enlarged nodes, especially if you have reasons to believe you may be HIV positive, I encourage you to visit your doc right away. Good luck.

Not likely but

Body_contouring
It is not likely just by having a one swollen lymph node in groin.But we can not tell you for sure what it could be due to. I will suggest you get it checked by your family doctor.Discuss with your parents and get it checked as you are 16 years old

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

Sore throat , swollen lymph nodes , mouth ulcers . Are they signs of HIV?

Might be

Diphtheria
Acute HIV syndromes can have several presentations, including looking like meningitis, but the most common is like infectious mononucleosis, with fever, swollen lymph nodes, malaise. If you are asking how HIV can present after you have had it many years asymptomatically, that is a subject for a large volume of information. If you are concerned, please get tested. Early treatment is best.

Dr. Amy Deeken answered:

Just curious, if someone got hiv several years ago, do all lymph nodes swell gradually or all same time? how long do they stay swollen?

Depends on the cause

Hiv
Lymphadenopathy in an HIV patient must be carefully evaluated. It is true that the HIV virus can cause a lymphadenopathy response in itself. However, HIV can also make you more succeptable to different infections and malignancies (lymphoma and Kaposi sarcoma) which can present with lymphadenopathy. It is important to be evaluated by a physician to exclude any of these other causes.

Had dental infection > Only 1 swollen lymph node for 2 months.Now 1 swollen tonsil.Had unprotected sex. Took truvada 36 hours later.HIV?

See a dentist ASAP

Infection
An infection lasting 2 months needs to be evaluated ASAP. By waiting, it may make things worse. If is not dentally related, they will get you to the right provider.

HIV

Human_immunodeficiency_virus
There are STDs that can easily be gotten through oral sex. You need to be tested for HIV as well as for other STDs including syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, etc.If you are an HIV-1 negative adult Truvada may help reduce the risk of you getting HIV-1 infection through sex if you are at high risk, but it is not 100% effective. Go and get seen and in future be protected. Better safe than sorry.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

If one had HIV and if their lymph nodes were swollen due to early HIV, would it likely be all over the body or all over the neck or just one spot?

Can see anything

Chronic_pain
If you have been potentially exposed to HIV infection, are worried about HIV infection, or have engaged in risky behavior, go and get tested not only for HIV but for other STDs.

Dr. Steven Hebert answered:

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

Bacterial_infections
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.

Show your physician at your next visit. All teenaged males have inguinal lymph nodes. If you are concerned you may have HIV, get tested in any case.
