I'm not sure where this message should be posted but i figured that enough people who knew what they were talking about about this type of thing so I thought I would post here. I'm male, 21 years old, 185 pounds, safe-sexually active, and relatively healthy. Feb First I had Strep throat, last monday I went to eh doctor with a fever of 38.6'C (for us people, that is considerred 'low grade' under 100 i believe. I came in with soar swollen glands, aches, terrible soar throat, headache etc. I've been having night sweats, although those are just from the fever. They tested for strep, it was negative. The doctor said my spleen was touching his finger, which means it was a little enlarged. They sent me for blood test, CBC, (or wahtever that white blood cell stuff is called), Monotest, and CellStructure test. I was told they would call today by 5pm if there was any problem. No call - but I am still a little worried and will have to wait until monday to call back myself and make sure there's no problem with the results.

My question is - is there other reaons why my spleen can be enlarged other than mono or more serious things which have already been ruled out? Am i in any danger of my spleen bursting over the weekend?

Thanks for ur help.
