Mononucleosis Information

Nicknamed the "kissing disease," mononucleosis (mono) is an illness that is typically spread through saliva and mucus. Swollen lymph nodes, sore throat, and fever are some of the most common symptoms. Although there is no cure for mononucleosis, various treatment options are available to help relieve symptoms as your body fights the virus.
 
If a diagnosis of mono is suspected, your healthcare provider will gather information on your medical history and any possible symptoms you are experiencing, and will likely also perform a test called the monospot blood test.
