Lymph nodes
      #205380 - 08/29/06 04:17 PM

No body in the "I'm infected?" area was willing to help me with this, are lymph nodes related to hiv infection (when sollen) painless and the size of a pea, and usually appear behind the ear or in the back of the neck?

Will appreciate

the swelling of nodes alone are an unlikely sign of hiv infection, and swelling of the nodes is indicitive of a whole slew of things. but if that's your only symptom , i really doubt it. get the test and you'll feel better - but in plain terms, the swelling of nodes alone does not indicate hiv infection.

Your symptoms mean nothing until you get tested for HIV.

Just go to google and look under "Images" and type in keyword "lymph nodes" it should show pictures of what some Hiv/aid patients swollen lymph nodes should look like.

Yes lymph nodes play a huge part.When they are swollen it's usually your body fighting something.But in HIV people the nodes stay bigger than a normal person.
