Mononucleosis Test (Mono Test)


The Mononucleosis Test, or mono test, is designed to determine whether or not your body contains the Epstein-Barr virus (the virus that causes mononucleosis). Dubbed “the kissing disease” due to its transmission through saliva, mono is extremely contagious and commonly impacts teenagers and young adults. Mononucleosis causes flu-like symptoms including fever, sore throat, fatigue, headaches, and loss of appetite. Symptoms typically last anywhere from a few weeks (common) to a few months (rare). Unfortunately, there is no cure or specific treatment for mono other than rest, fluids, and proper diet. As symptoms are comparable to influenza or the common cold, the only way to confirm or rule out a mono diagnosis is to take a mononucleosis test.
