|HIV+ Female genitalia (Lymph nodes) tender swollen dark spots
May 12, 2006
I'm white HIV+ female for over 6 years and am having swollen lymph nodes on my upper genitals, the spots are tender and turned dark. What is happening and will this change back to the normal color?
Response from Dr. Henry
The course of what happens to the described lymph nodes depends on the cause. An evaluation/biopsy would often be helpful at sorting out the diagnosis and whether any treatment would be recommended. KH
Why should I care???
