3. Symptoms

The symptoms of mono can be uncomfortable at times, but they are still only likely to be mild. As mentioned, young children with the disease will often experience no symptoms at all. When symptoms do show, the patient will often not see a doctor for a diagnosis because of the mild nature of the disease.

It will usually take around 4-6 weeks after infection for any symptoms do show. When if/when they do show, they typically include a sore throat, and some people will develop tonsillitis. A fever and a headache are also likely, as are swollen lymph nodes. Some patient will also develop a rash, and some will also have an enlarged spleen.
