Annoying Tonsil!!!!!!!!

I have suffered with tonsil stones for a couple of years from my right tonsil. Now my tonsil is slightly enlarged and I have been referred to ENT. Appointment in a months time... What should I expect from my appointment? Any kind words of comfort appreciated, so worried I've got Lymphoma or some cancer.

Thank you!

Re: Annoying Tonsil!!!!!!!!

im sure you will be fine, many peoples tonsils are horrid and play up. my ENT consultant said he doesent understand why all are not removed from birth!, you probably will talk to them and have your tonsils removed, and dont worry , its a good thing, no more stones

as for the lymphoma, i had Hodgekins Lymphoma (cancer of lymph nodes) and i never had stones are my tonsils enlarged.

keep your chin up, im sure you will be fine

Re: Annoying Tonsil!!!!!!!!

Thanks for your reply. Why did u have to have your tonsils out? My appointment is on the 11/9 and I'm starting to get v scared. My tonsil doesn't bother me enough to go thru with a tonsillectomy I just want to know my enlarged tonsil isnt going to make me ill. x
