Q: How long to see HIV test result?
Also Swolen lymph node without any pain in neck, should this be cuase of concern
A: You can speak to your doctor about new generation tests that are effective in detecting HIV in the very early stages. The “window period” is usually 6 weeks although these days it has come down to about 4 weeks or so depending on the availability of facilities in your region. Speak to your doctor immediately. A swollen lymph node is always a cause of concern but this does not always mean that it is serious. Since you are concerned about HIV infection, then you may have been partaking in some activity that can be considered as risky. In this instance, your lymph node swelling should be immediately investigated.
