Many... seek consult: Night sweats are non-specific--meaning they may be related to many diseases. The specific tests--if any are needed--should be based on your other symptoms, medical history, and physical exam. There are many, many tests which are potentially "appropriate" but please discuss this with your physician so they can determine what, if anything, should be ordered.
