For a long time now I have had a large right tonsil. I can see it when I brush my teeth. I was sick back in December with h pylori. While treating that, I got a sore throat. I opened my mouth wide one day and noticed the bottom part where I can't normally see while brushing my teeth was also bigger. I seen a yellowish clear mark on it. So I googled it and came up with asymmetrical tonsils is a sign of cancer. I have
Seen an ENT and he says he's 95% sure it's fine. He said if I was going to lose sleep over it he would remove it or we can just watch it for 6 mos. I chose to watch it. So, I stretch my mouth open everyday probably 30 times to see if it's gotten bigger, which it hasn't. Now I have ear, neck and throat pain on same side. Dr says TMJ. Says Motrin for three days should help and if it doesn't we will have to look into it further, what the heck! I heard that TMJ can last for a while with flair ups. I can't sleep worried about this tonsil. I have seen an ENT, ER doc, PA at MedExpress, family doc, and dentist. They don't seem concerned. I have to tame xanax at night just to sleep 3 hours. Anyone else have asymmetric tonsils. Left is 2+ and Right is 3+. Family doc says she would never have thought anything about it. It's been bigger for at least 7 years that I can remember. Help!
