Re: Chronic throat problems

Unfortunately tonsils do sometimes develop carcinoma and less commonly lymphoma. I think the CT scan will help sort this out but the bottom line is that you need these out and the tissue examined for any evidence of malignancy. I would call the place where CT scan is scheduled and see if they can fit you in sooner, perhaps a cancellation spot. You can call every day if you want to check for an opening. I would ask for a tonsillectomy and try to get it done ASAP, since you are so miserable. You might want to consult with a head and neck surgeon since you didn't like this ENT. Good luck, and I hope everything turns out ok.
