Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.

have you gotten tested for HIV?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I was tested in the 90 I am scared to death do you think i could have aids even if my blood work on cbc came out good and what was that minmal enlargment on my scan mean is that mean i have aids

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.

The enlarged lymph nodes could be from anything. Even the urinary tract infection can do that. I doubt you have AIDS if the CBC is totally normal. However, if you have had an exposure since you got tested you need tested again. Not likely HIV though
