palpable node

Oct 28, 2012

Are palpable lymph nodes only found in people with hiv. I can feel one lymph node on my neck and read palpable nodes are only in hiv patients.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi No lymph nodes are in everyone and if someone is dealing with a viral infection or getting a cold etc then this is the area of the body that gears up to fight off infection.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Do you feel testing is warranted
HIV antibody test
