KS still being diagnosed?
Apr 25, 2001

Do I need to worry about KS anymore? I mean I've been infected for 4 years. Should I always check my body for strange spots? I'm a gay man, but I wasn't and am not promiscuious.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

KS is still being diagnosed, although much less frequently. You don't say whether you are on combination therapy for HIV-- KS is rare among HIV+s that have responded well to HIV treatment. If you're not getting treated for HIV, then continuing to check is not a bad idea.
