Medical History for Mononucleosis

If your doctor thinks you might have mononucleosis (mono), he or she will take your medical history. This simply involves asking you questions such as:

  • What are your symptoms, and how long have you had them?
  • Do you live with or have you come in close contact with anyone who is known to have mono?
  • Has anyone in your household been in close contact with someone who is known to have mono?
  • Do you have any conditions, such as an impaired immune system, that would put you at risk for complications of mono?
