Does having breast cancer change HIV testing?
Oct 14, 2001

If you were to find out you had breast cancer, then would your 6 month HIV test be final or do I need further testing?

Response from Dr. Dezube

HIV testing should NOT be altered in anyway by a diagnosis of breast cancer. If your 6 month HIV test is negative, then I would consider this result as final.

I had a brain tumor. Do I now have HIV?
