Can HPV cause swollen lymph nodes?
Nov 15, 2002

Can HPV cause swollen lymph nodes?

Response from Dr. Dezube

Yes indeed. Lymph nodes are part of the immune system. A lymph node becomes swollen as it mounts an immune response to an infection. HPV can cause such an immune response. HPV can cause enlarged lymph nodes as part of the infection, as part as a response to a wart, or as part of the response to a developing anal/cervical cancer. Virtually any perturbation to the human body can cause lymph nodes to enlarge. Often this is a health sign.
