lesions in AIDS patients; are they cancer

Question

Are all lesions in AIDS patients cancer?

Answer

ABSOLUTELY NOT. There are many many things which can cause lesions which are not cancer. Many lesions are benign growths, many lesions are caused by viruses (e.g. molluscum, warts, and so on)or other infectious agents, and many lesions are caused by a whole variety of diseases which are NOT cancerous.
