Thank you for your query at
This is because of 'mono' with neck node swelling. My answer will be related to this.
This is a self limiting infection which needs only symptomatic treatment only. Once the immune system controls the infection, the swelling will come down.
If you have spleen enlargement by usg scan, please avoid contact sports.
Feel free to discuss further

Patient replied :

So these are not related to cancer like(lymphoma,hodgkins,non hodgkins)? I am really worried doctor,i cannot even afford to treatments for more complicated diseases. does my reports suggest it is "mono" exactly?
Waiting for your reply doctor!

No, there is nothing wrong with the report.
It is suggestive of mono, and you will get better.
Take care!
