Swollen Glands, Lymph nodes
I would like to know how swollen glands, or lymph nodes present themselves in HIV disease.
Do they appear shortly after infection, with the swelling then going down but the lump never
actually disappearing?
Or can they not appear until 7 mo. to a year after infection? Is this possible?


Many thanks

In case of  HIV infection, swollen lymph nodes usually appear after 3-5 weeks of exposure, along with 5-6 other ARS symptoms. In case of true HIV  infection, nodes once swollen, will not return to normal, though swelling reduces to large extent. Only your doctor can judge their enlargement correctly and accurately.

Swollen lymph node could also be due to other infection, therefore their enlargement is not a valid indication of HIV. Further it is very unlikely that such HIV related symptoms (ARS) surface after that long.
