I have mono right now, and my tonsils are very large with white spots on them. Is this common with mono? Or is it a separate problem?
Swollen tonsils with white spots are a common symptom of mono. Mono symptoms vary, and different people may get different ones.
If your tonsils start getting bigger or painful, or if it becomes difficult to swallow or breathe, see your doctor right away.
