Continue workup: Teen cancers don't announce themselves in this way without either very abnormal blood work, very abnormal neuro stuff, or a mass. You're checking your testes, right? It's common for teens to lose weight from mono, from a new sport, or even from illness -- a check for malabsorption / sprue may be in order if you're really wasted or obviously sick.See 1 more doctor answer

I have mono but I'm not very tired just a mild sore throat and my spleen is a bit enlarged. Can I still weight lift? Hard to believe myspleenwillburst
Mild Mono: It probably wont, but I would wait until your spleen returns to normal size, which shouldn't be too long, since you seem to have a mild case.
Exam of sumandibular: Monucleosis is caused by the epstein-barr virus which causes swelling of the submandibular glands and lymph nodes in the upper neck. There are two different tests to help in the diagnoses of acute of chronic ebv. Acute ebv occurs at age 5or6 when he or she becomes children playing together. Ebv reactivates at teenage years when stress events (first love) or school change occurs. Immune suppress.
Much less....: You activity level must fall, or the duration of illness and its severity will both be worsened. Anyone who is ill with infection, must cut their activity level. Until you are better, walking is probably the only medical answer you should get!
Maybe, maybe not: Mono is usually a mild flu like illness in kids, but intensifies in older patients. In most it will run it's course in 3 weeks, in 10% it may take 3 mo and rare patients have significant complications. Avoidance of potential trauma is advised as the spleen is often enlarged and could rupture if traumatized.
Might be possible: Sxs of mononucleosis may include: fever, sore throat, decreased appetite, feeling tired, feeling poorly overall, rash, swollen lymph nodes, muscle aches & pain & an enlarged sleep. Coughing, shortness of breath, headaches, turning yellow, chest discomfort & rapid heart rate may also occur.
Mononucleosis: Please submit a clear & specific question about Mono. Clarify and re-ask.
Mono: If one has infectious mononucleosis standard precautions are needed. No need to skip school unless feeling very sick and needs to rest. Contact sports to be avoided in case of splenomegaly till it resolves.
Not much: During mono the liver is usually inflamed to some degree making it hard for it to complete all it's work, such as detoxifying the alcohol you ingested. At some level, the alcohol can cause liver cell injury, but this organ self heals over time unless the injury is chronic. If at some point you kill your liver, you will either need a transplant or will bleed to death. You might try to treat it betterSee 1 more doctor answer
Med eval: Please seek medical evaluation. Both mononucleosis and strep throat can be easily diagnosed. Treatment varies depending on the cause of your symptoms.
Not a good idea: When you have an enlarged spleen, it is possible for it to rupture (break open) if you hit something. That can be dangerous and make you need emergency surgery. Spleens can be different sizes, but generally the bigger, the worse the risk from being hit. Also, people with mono are often too tired to enjoy or do well with skiing. Put off your skiing several weeks.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: If I could answer that question on this website, there would be no need to ever actually see a doctor for anything. Both conditions exist, and therefore either is possible. (pardon the sarcasm, but there's only so much we doctors can do on the web with limited information.).
No: Mono is very common, but usually not severe. Teens and adults catch it (it's caused by the ebv virus) by contacting an infected person's saliva. Young children catch the virus too, such as from parents and relatives sharing food or drink with them. However, young kids have milder symptoms so doctors don't diagnose mono. Teens and adults have harsher symptoms, so are diagnosed as having mono.See 1 more doctor answer
Testing: The most common symptoms are sore throat and fatigue. Often there is a low grade fever. There are too many other problems that can have similar symptoms. There is a screening test and a thorough blood test. The screen, as all screens, is not 100% reliable. A serum Epstein Barr profile is the most accurate test
Mono: Mononucleosis presents with swollen tonsils that may have white to yellow exudates, skin rash, enlarged lymph nodes on the front & back of your neck and enlarged spleen &/or liver. Your white blood cell will be elevated. A monospot test will show - or + for mono & antibody titers can distinguish btwn old vs new infection.
