In brief: Confusing question

Mono often will have a mild hepatitis as one of it's many symptoms.
However, this has nothing to do with the other causes of hepatitis (a, b, c, etc). If you feel you have been exposed to one of those illnesses or have symptoms your pcp can check it out.

In brief: No

Not routinely. Only if you have symptoms.
