Re: One swollen tonsil for almost two months?

I had the same thing. I was extremely worried because I am a cancer survivor. I happened to look in my car rear view mirror and saw my right tonsil was swollen and my left was normal. I went to my oncologist and he sent me to an ent doctor. After looking at it, he told me he doubted it was cancer but that it needed to be removed to be 100 percent sure. Well I waited until after the holidays and stressed myself out over it. I had it removed last week and got the results today and it turned out it was not cancer but tonsil stones. Also sulfur deposits or something like that but I am ok and recovering from the tonsillectomy. So don't always think the worst like I did!!!
