testing facts

Aug 6, 2000

Is it true that someone could have HIV and not being picked up on medical test, ever? I heard from a doctor that hiv can lay dormant for years without the person knowing and then violently killing them.

Wouldn't we say that the people in other countries are not showing positive for such a long time because they lack the capabilities of certain test?

How would a doctor go about testing suspicious symptoms if the standardized test kept coming back negative?

Thank you doctor and have a nice day.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Show me some data.
