Swollen Lymph Node at Week 9?

May 3, 1999

What is the likliehood a swollen lymph node in the neck at Week 9 is a symptom of HIV? I believe the swolleness is just on 1-side of my neck, and I have had no other flu-like symptoms I can think of. Are swollen lymph nodes usually associated with other symptoms or can they be stand-alone? Thank You.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

One swollen gland and no other symptoms, would not be considered enough to entertain a diagnosis of HIV infection. Although swollen glands are a hallmark of HIV infection, they usually occur everywhere (groin, armpits, neck, etc). MH
