lymph nodes

Nov 26, 2006

I was diagnosed in Nov 06 and i was infected in sept 06. What prompted me to get tested were the swollen lymph nodes in my neck. They are still swollen and i'm quite concerned about if they will go down. I spoke to the doctor about it but because they don't hurt they were not worried.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Swollen glands are a very nonspecific finding, in that many other diseases can be manifest by swollen glands. Swollen lymph nodes can certainly be part of HIV infection, particularly in those patients who are recently infected, or are chronically infected and not on treatment with relatively high viral loads.
