One chronic swollen tonsil

I’ve had this issue for as long as I can remember.  My right tonsil is twice as big as my left and constantly produces pea sized tonsil stones. (About half the size of my normal tonsil)
After one comes out, my throat hurts the rest of the day and I get a headache. - this May be related but I also get random sharp pain deep in the corresponding ear.

I also have chronic silent migraines corresponding to that side and what I believe to be slightly swollen lymph nodes.
Only issue is, this has all been present for years, so I’m not sure if it’s an infection or may be a genetic thing or / a general “well you’re screwed up” thing. :/ (I’ve considered getting my tonsils removed, but most doctors brush me off or ignore that it’s been years and say that it’ll go away)
