HIV lymphoma

Hi, I'm new here. I have this friend who has HIV AIDS for 5 months now and developed a lump. He was referred by his Infectious disease doctor to see a Chemotherapy doctor.
Are patients with HIV still candidates for chemotherapy?

Hi.
I understand the concerns with treatment in the presence of HIV. With the help of some new drugs that improve white blood cell counts, patients with HIV are able to better tolerate chemotherapy.
Its best you discuss these things with your chemotherapy doctor. If the infectious disease expert made the referral, then it is more likely that your friend is strong enough to tolerate the treatment.
