Welcome to HCM.
HIV tests are almost 99% reliable. If they are negative even after 7 months after your sex contact, that means you need not worry at all about HIV through this episode.
Swelling of neck glands may be due to many other cause also.
So you approach a surgeon or an ENT Specialist and got treated. you will be alright
Wish you a speedy recovery. Dr SM

Thanks for your query.

I do not think there is a need to consider HIV in the possibilities.

A FNAC (Fine needle aspiration cytology ) of the lumps in the neck would find out the exact cause of the selling.

This will put you at ease at once and also can plan treatment at the earliest.

Wish you good health.
