swolen glands in groin
      #118924 - 12/02/04 11:55 AM

I went to the doctor for a check up. I thought I had a swolen gland in my groin are... The doctor said she couldn't feel anything.

I am really panicking as It has been six weeks ago since I've been exposed to HIV.

How do you know if you have a swolen gland & how big will it be??? Will I deffinately know I have it? Is it painful?

Is it possible that she just did not feel it but it is there?

Please help me

You had a MD with 13 years of college and years of practice tell you that she did not feel any swollen gland. Stop practicing medicine without a liciense. You don't have a swollen node.
