I know the obvious answer is to see a doctor, I am seeing an oncologist in a week, but I am curious, at what point, what symptoms, etc, should further investigation take place?
I have had Mono for 3 months now, I had a blood test 3 months ago, and it confirmed EBV. Since then I have had a fever of 99-101 degrees for 3 months, sometimes it drops back to normal, or so my thermometer says. It may be a low fever, but for me, it's a fever. I also have a terrible headache. What is worrying me the most is that for the past week, I have developed itching all over my body, of course I google it and it says it is a symptom of lymphoma. All my doctor said was that he can send me to an Allergist, but that doesn't help... My lymph nodes aren't swollen, my blood work is all relatively normal with the exception of having Mono, RBC, WBC and liver counts are all within normal range. I also had a CT Scan of my brain for something unrelated about 3 months ago and they said it was normal. What do you think?
I am scared because I am only 20, this is all pretty frightening.
