Many possibilities: One's primary care doctor will evaluate for the cause of the night sweats. There are many possibilities, and it is not done through guesswork. Usually, things the doctor will check for are various infections, some hormonal issues, blood disorders, cancers, psychiatric issues, high room temperature, etc... If the doctor needs specialist help after preliminary evaluation, referrals can be done.
