Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

One lump is not specific for HIV.

In fact this is likely due to the viral infection --cold virus.

Also smoking can make you pone for cold virus infection.

The time frame is still too early for HIV manifest like this.

Only if your symptoms tend to worsen beyond 2 weeks then you may have some reasons to worry.

But still that does not suggest HIV in most cases.

You can get 4th generation HIV antibody testing now.

A negative test will essentially rule out HIV.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
