Hiv risk from anal sex

Hello ,I am a 34 y.o gay male , I was involved into sexual activities with another gay . We used condom while we had anal sex , the condom did not break but I am afraid if the condom slipped off any time during sex while he was inside me, couz once when he put out his penis , I sow him rolling back with hands the condom to push it all back and cover full his penis , at the end he cum and the cum was inside the condom.
As well before intercourse he was touching my anus with his finger .
1-Which is my risk from this exposure?
2-What if he had blood or precum on his finger , which is the risk ?
3-I had a painful lymp node on side of my neck on    
   third day post exposure now the node is not
   painful ? Is this Ars related ?
4-Do I need to get tested and when ?

Risk for anal sex is not what you had. You had condom protected anal sex which is NOT a risk. You've read many posts here, I'm sure. The risks for HIV are to have unprotected (you didn't) vaginal or anal sex or to share IV needles to inject drugs. You had a barrier to hiv as the head of your penis or theirs was covered. ONLY the head needs to be covered. Fingering is NEVER a risk. No one gets hiv that way. We aren't interested at all in your lymph nodes or any other ache or pain you have. HIV is not diagnosed that way nor did you have any risk whatsoever. No risk

Thank you for your reply and help , So I don’t need to get tested ?
If you did not have a risk, you do not need to test. You did not have a risk.
