Experts in the study of HIV at Valle de Hebrón Hospital in Barcelona have published a report saying that men with HIV have a significantly higher incidence of malignant neoplasms (cancerous tumors) than in the healthy male population, something that does not occur in women.
New HIV side effects in men patients
Lung cancers were the most frequently diagnosed neoplasms in both women and men with HIV infection, together with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and Kaposi’s sarcoma. The study was presented during the X National Congress of GeSIDA (AIDS Study Group of the Spanish Society of Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology), the main scientific meeting on HIV held in Spain. To conduct the research, the authors studied 2,773 patients infected with HIV between 2009 and 2017, a period in which 212 malignant neoplasms were diagnosed in 183 patients (see more HERE ).
