Mono Test Positive With No Signs of Mono????

Question Recently my husband had some severe abdominal pain, went to the doctor and found his spleen was enlarged. She sent him to the lab to get a mono test, and called back the next day and said it was positive. They did another one, and it too was positive. He had mono before when he was 14 (9 years ago) and it was terrible for him. Is it possible to have mono and not have any symptoms? Is there anything else that could cause that test to be positive?

I wasn't aware that a virus could represent with a single symptom. No fever, no sore throat, and swollen lymph nodes. Just the enlarged spleen and the stomach pain from which is gone.

Some people have no symptoms of mono. I just did a very quick internet search and John's Hopkins University website tells me not everyone has symptoms. While other may develop an enlarged spleen, inflamation of the liver and/or rash.
