Brief Answer:
needs clinical examination and fnac

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

I havecread your query and understand your concern.

Painless lymph node swellings in two regions (neck and axilla, in your case) is not at all a good sign, specially with a normal blood count test.

It can be seen as a result of HIV infection, lymphomas and lung cancers, and tuberculosis, if you were recently exposed to a case or travelled to an endemic area.

In my opinion you should see a surgeon for a complete clinical evaluation of both of these nodes and the axillary swelling. Also a chest xray and a needle biopsy (fnac) of these swellings might be needed.

Hope i have been helpful.

Regards,
Dr. Ashish Verma

Brief Answer:
No its not

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX

Its not normal for a lump to alter its size daily. They usually grow in size at a fair pace or reduce in size with treatment.

It is changing its size daily with a swelling in axilla, maybe they both are connected. But with axilla skin swollen, and fluctuating size of the neck node, it should mostly be an infective condition. But that should have shown in your blood counts.

It's better to show to a surgeon once for a clinical evaluation. That should clear most of the things.

Dr. Ashish Verma

Hi, I am considering having laser hair removal, am HIV+ and currently on medication, but fit and healthy. Is there any reason why I would not be advised to have the procedure? I have not told the clinician of my status nor do I plan to, however are there any risks associated with the procedure or could it have an adverse effect due to the medications?

uhm, Heya... i find it hard to believe i'm doing this, but: I'm an 18 year old male, about 1.90m tall.. today my girlfriend came over and had condoms with her, thinking that we could do something that none of us have done before (if you catch my drift), normaly i have an errection everytime we're kissing and getting a bit "kinky", but when i tried to put the condom on, or even reach for it, my errection just vanished, each time... is it all in my mind or is there something i can do to overcome this shyness problem?
