|Swollen Node in underarm
Jul 6, 1999
I am very nervous because in March I developed a painful swelling in my right underarm. Is this the begining of a localized HIV infection. To make matters worse I now have a node that seems to have developed between my legs-not in my groin but further back towards my anus. The swelling under my arms was initially painful but it no longer is. My doctor sent me to get a CBC to test for adenopathy. I am kind of scared of going. I have always used a condom during sex. Your response would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Your symptoms are very nonspecific. Swollen glands can be caused by a number of different infections or other noninfectious causes. MH
