Am I suspected?
Nov 30, 2008

I found 3 lymph nodes below the mandible,one on each side of postauricular region and about 5 at inguinal region for more than 2 months.They haven't disappear yet.Please suggest me what should I do.As I m a medical student,will I have a chance to become a doctor if I'm HIV positive?I thank god for having this website.

Response from Dr. McGowan

As you may have read, there are many reasons why people have lymph nodes they can feel. My advice is that you should go and see a doctor. Your doctor may reassure you or he or she may perform some blood tests or might decide to refer you for a lymph node biopsy. Having HIV does not mean that one cannot become a physician; however, there may be regional limitations (different countries/states have different rules) as to what field of medicine one can practice. But first things first, please go and see a doctor. What occurs between you and your doctor is confidential. Good luck, Joe
