I have an enlarged spleen, drenching night sweats, a cough, and slight difficulty breathing. I have no way to be seen, but what could this be? mono?
Don't think is mono: If it was mono, your most prominent symptoms would be fatigue, sore throat, difficulty swallowing and very swollen neck glands. You did not mention any of those. How do you know you have an enlarged spleen? Now, any difficulty breathing is of concern, since it can go from mild to bad to worse any minute- allergy, asthma?

You : You are correct regarding an enlarged spleen with mono. The spleen is located on the left side of the abdomen, closer to the middle; it is also closer to your back than your abdominal wall. If your spleen is enlarged and causing you pain, there is the possibility that this pain is radiating to the area you described. You must also consider that this may represent a different process, possibly a UTI (urinary tract infection). For this reason you should see your doctor for an evaluation and testing for mono as well as testing for a possible uti. Lastly remember to drink plenty of fluids and in the meantime avoid any contact sports or strenuous exercise. Take care. ...Read more
