I love Dr. Bob! Donation made

Sep 26, 2010

You are amazing. I wish you were right next to me so that I could give you a huge hug!

After a few months from my exposure (both unprotected receptive and insertive oral sex with a stranger), now I have swollen lymph nodes (small pea-sized) on the sides of my neck, right armpit, under the jaws, and in my groin. As you can probably tell, I'm really scared right now.

1. What are the chances that these swollen lymph nodes are due to HIV? 2. Could other STI's cause swollen lymph nodes? If so, what are they?

Thank you for what you do. I hope to hear back from you soon!

Response from Dr. Frascino


1. Negligible to essentially nonexistent.

2. Nope.

You're welcome.

Dr. Bob
