Isolated Swollen Node
Mar 6, 2001
I have an isolated swollen node, that was tender initially for about a week. The tenderness has since gone away but the node is still enlarged and feels hard. If I continually press on it will this keep it from going down? Could a swollen node for about a month be a sign of HIV infection?
Response from Dr. Henry
Though possible that would be an usual sole manifestation. Usually a single enlarged lymph node is not due to HIV infection. KH
