Dr. Henry

In one of your answers you stated that people generally have some degree of swollen lymph nodes in the neck throughout the course of hiv. Is it just in the neck or are they swollen in other places as well such as armpits and groin etc. Also when a person is on meds and has an undetectable viral load do the swollen glands go away?

Response from Dr. Henry

Swollen glands exist throughout the body but are often most noticeable in the neck regions. Effective therapy is often associated with a decrease in swollen lymph nodes. KH
