    Oral/tonsil cancer ?

    Hi I am pretty new to this website so Im not really sure how this works. Im not sure really how to start but I always had relatively large tonsils , and growing up I constantly got strep, after that it seems like I've gotten immune to the pain. However recently I noticed that my right tonsil its a lot larger than my left , I didn't think to much of it. A few days later I checked to see if it got better and it seemed to look like puss developed on it , but I felt no pain. I decided to go to the doctor thinking maybe I have strep. He came in and instantly noticed that the right side of my face was swollen, I don't know how I possibly missed that , but I did! He said my lymph nodes felt fine and he decided for some odd reason to check my ear and said that I have an ear infection, so he prescribed me Amoxicillin. A few days later the puss went a away but I coughed and a small amount of blood, which alarmed me so I checked to see if maybe I had a cut in my mouth and there wasn't. A few days later I developed pain in my jaw and my ear ( my ears didn't hurt when I had the ear infection ) oral cancer never reached my mind until we were discussing it in my college course I started getting worried, can this maybe be oral or tonsil cancer? I don't mean to be over reacting I'm just nervous! Thank you

    No, just sounds like you need to have your tonsils out.
