Monospot Testing for Mononucleosis in Port Orange, FL

Mono, short for mononucleosis, is a contagious illness caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Informally known as the kissing disease, mono is transmitted through saliva and easily spread through close contact, such as kissing. While EBV affects people of all ages, it is particularly common among teens and young adults.

Halifax Health ExpressCare offers simple and effective Monospot testing for mononucleosis in Port Orange, Florida. This simple and effective test can detect EBV antibodies in a blood specimen. We process the samples we collect in our on-site lab, helping to ensure rapid results that pave the way for a prompt diagnosis and treatment if necessary.

How Do You Know if You Need Monospot Testing for Mononucleosis?

Mono symptoms typically become noticeable within four to six weeks after exposure to EBV. Some tell-tale signs of mononucleosis include:

  • Overwhelming fatigue
  • Low-grade fever
  • Body aches
  • Sore throat
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the neck

While mono is usually not serious, its symptoms—particularly the fatigue—can linger for up to several weeks. Additionally, EBV remains dormant in the body long after recovery. The virus can become reactivated months or even years later due to stress or a weakened immune system.

An accurate diagnosis is crucial to differentiate mono from other illnesses, such as strep throat, which can cause similar symptoms but may require a different treatment approach. Early detection can enable proper management, reduce the risk of transmission, and help prevent complications.

If you think you might have mono, visit Halifax Health ExpressCare in Port Orange, FL, where you can benefit from an expert evaluation and Monospot testing for mononucleosis if needed. Trust our team to provide the care you need to recover fully.
