Painless lump on scrotum that disappeared, similar lump in the armpit that disappeared to. HIV sign?

I am 38 years and sexually active. Recently I discovered a painless lump on my scrotum not testicles. Though it disappeared after 5 days. I do not have any other symptons. Is it a sign of HIV . About 6 weeks ago I had another painless small lump in the armpit. But it disappeared after 2 weeks. There were no other symptons too

Hi ,
Thanks for writing in.
The lumps can be lymph nodes.They are bodies response to any infection.They are not necessarily indicative of HIV.HIV infact causes persistent lymphadenopathy which remains for months together.
So there is nothing to be worried about.

Hope this helps.
