Resolved Question:

Hello I have noticed something with one of my tonsils or the tissue around it ! It's appears to be more prominent and and a different shape ! I was feeling run down last week and had some neck pain which has now gone just a little concerned regards to the chances of this being something serious I don't have a sore throat or any other symptoms

Any advice would be great I have sent a picture and circled the area of concern

Hello,

Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com

I have seen the picture. It is absolutely normal. Asymmetry in tonsils size and shape is quite common . there is no abnormal growth. As you have marked a groove on left tonsil, it is tonsillar crept which is normal and sometime more prominent.Sometimes food particles can stuck in it, looks like yellow debris.

So you in need not to worry about it and neck pain is not related to it.

Hope it helps,
Feel free to discuss further,

Best regards

Thank you that is a relief just one thing I can feel a senstion like something is stuck when I swallow just below the left tonsil and behind the tongue but to the side if that makes sense
is there any way to reduce this feeling , as this is what made me look in my mouth in the first place

thanks for your help
