tonsillectomy because of HPV???

Hi Guys,

Some of my doctorS (note: I have to go to many ENT doctors to make sure) had concluded about my current situation to go for tonsillectomy. I am afraid of having this surgery as there are so many pros and cons of having this remove. Certainly my life will change after getting this procedure. My current situation is i have HPV on my tonsil (2 warts to be exact), all doctors said, that my tonsil has to go! Has anyone in the same situation as i am? Please let me know. One of my doctors had told me to re take a biopsy cuz sometimes biopsy can be wrong. Has anyone got a misdiagnose from the result of their biopsy? Please do share...

What do you mean that your life will change after having them out? I had no changes that I noticed other than no more tonsillitis, strep throat, ear infections, sinus infections, etc. And those are all good changes.

Re: tonsillectomy because of HPV???

Lots of people have their tonsils out due to chronic tonsillitis, it's not a life-changing event. Your reason may be different, but the result will be the same (you won't have tonsils). Is there a reason you think your case would be different?
