Cysts and HIV
Mar 1, 2000

Is there a correlation between HIV and cysts? No one in my family is prone to them, but I am HIV + and had one large one removed from my back(waist level) and now a large one is growing on my back. They are definitely not lesions.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

I don't know what kind of cysts you've had, but I'm not aware of any particular association of cysts of any kind with HIV.
