lesions in AIDS patients; are they cancer
Mar 2, 2001

Are all lesions in AIDS patients cancer?

Response from Dr. Dezube

ABSOLUTELY NOT. There are many many things which can cause lesions which are not cancer. Many lesions are benign growths, many lesions are caused by viruses (e.g. molluscum, warts, and so on)or other infectious agents, and many lesions are caused by a whole variety of diseases which are NOT cancerous.
