HIV/AIDS and Breast Cancer.
Jun 10, 2001

Can breast cancer lead to HIV/AIDS or have anything to do with HIV/AIDS?

Response from Dr. Dezube

Breast cancer and HIV/AIDS are pretty much unrelated. Breast cancer does not lead to HIV, and HIV does not lead to breast cancer. A very recent article in the Journal of the American Medical Association actually showed that HIV-infected patients had a DECREASED chance of developing breast cancer when compared to HIV-negative patients.

Can lymphoma come back? I'm scared.
Are "Mono" and HIV related?
