Canker sores associated with HIV

Approximately how long after the HIV infection is caught do Canker sores begin to appear? Is it usually fairly quickly, ie within the first year, or do they take several years to occur? Thanks

I've never had one in 25 years of having HIV.

right, but some people do. So does anyone know if these are early or late stage symptoms?

Canker sores have nothing to do with HIV. Anyone can get canker sores. See your dentist if you have a concern.
