Alright, I'm 18, desperate for an answer.
Desperate for someone to tell me what is wrong with my throat.
I chose the cancer forum because hey, maybe I have throat cancer.
Anyway, my left tonsil has been swollen for almost one year this coming February.
It never hurt, it never felt awkward, it was completely constant, I've never had strep or any other crazy throat irritation.
It's SIGNIFICANTLY larger than the other. When people look at it they go "OH gosh! You should get that looked at"
And I have. First by my family doctor who said "Its just naturally bigger" then by an ear nose and throat specialist who said "It could be a slight case of tonsilitis and if its not bothering you, it should go away, if it starts to bother you give us a call" then proceeded to sit there and stare at me like that was all I was going to get and THEN I found a new doctor and was tested for lupus, leukimia (I think I spelled that wrong) and strep. Nothing. She said that if it's not bothering me, it should be fine. My parents are worried but don't know what else to do, plus I'm always paranoid that im dying... so yeah.
I'm angry, I'm worried, I'm frustrated, I'm scared beyond all reason.
If ya'll need to see pictures, I'll take them.
I don't want my tonsils out considering everyone says they're so important.
Lately my tonsil has been looking "pitty" like its starting to get holes in it, and so has the right, normal one.
Granted I don't know what a normal tonsil looks like anymore, so I could just be being paranoid.
I'm just a freaked out kid wanting an answer.
