Lymph Nodes
      #194480 - 06/04/06 08:38 PM

Hi everyone

I have a question regarding lymph nodes in armpits. With HIV, is it normal for one armpit node to be enlarged, or is it more likely to be in both armpit?

This does not sound like HIV. Go get tested 3 months after the risk and you'll know your status.

With HIV, if there is swelling of the lymph nodes, it would generally involve all of the nodes and not just one. They'd generally be swollen on both sides of the neck, the groin and both armpits. If you think you had risk for HIV, get a test at 13 weeks after the incident you think was potentially risky.
