|path of hiv
Sep 14, 2001
When the hiv virus first enters the body, does the nearest lymphnode area swell first or is it always the ones in the neck area to swell? For example: Virus enters penis - groin area swells first? Virus enters finger - armpit area swells first? Virus enters mouth- neck area swells first? Thank you Doctor

Usually it is the regional lymph nodes (eg. those closest to the inoculation point) that react first.
