Neck Lymph Node
Feb 20, 2001

Hi doctor. Is it possible for the lymph node in the neck to be painful but not swollen? And if so, is this a symptom for HIV?

Response from Dr. Bartlett

Lymph nodes can be painful, although usually they are also swollen. These symptoms could be consistent with HIV infection, and you should strongly consider contacting your health care provider to get tested.

Possible Symptoms? Early seroconversion?
