1) very very unlikely. Test can detect almost all types
2) swollen lymph nodes does not mean hiv. As a dental student you should know how the immune system works. It may be other infections that is not hiv.

You've tested negative repeatedly after 6 months and a year, therefore you clearly don't have HIV. You should be seeking other reasons for your swollen lymph node. It could be anything, from something minor to something very serious. Go see a doctor to get a full evaluation. But you have 100% ruled out HIV with multiple negative tests so that's definitely not the problem.
