testicular cancer and aids????????

Jun 18, 1999

my friend has had hiv since 1984 and he had a swollen testical so went to the dr and come to find out it was seminoma and was removed thankfully it was localized but the question i have is since he is on all these meds can there be a connection as seeing his immune system was so weak for a long time can that have occured from having hiv there has to be a connection somewhere .......

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Probably true-true and unrelated. It is one of the most common tumors of the testes in non-HIV infected men. MH

How much less risk if viral load is undetectable?
