There have been many who speculate that just about everyone comes down with "mono", but in some it's not much more severe than a minor cold. Unfortunately, mono can be quite a bit more severe among many people. Typically, mono affects the lymph glands below the jaw bones. The disease can last anywhere from a few weeks to several months. It should be watched by your physician, since mono can also affect your spleen and cause more severe problems among a small percentage of the population.
