My tonsils hurt!!

My right tonsil is KILLIN me. I looked and I had a tonsil stone. My right one is swollen and it looks like there are big craters in it. Has anyone else ever had this problem? Did they remove your tonsils?

  • If it's a chronic problem your doctor has had to treat alot, they may take them out. My daughter's tonsils were too big even when not swollen, so they took hers..

  • I had problems with my tonsils from the time I was 2 until they finally took them out when I was 16. I had tonsilitis 5-7 times a year, every holiday and family get together it seems like I was sick. I haven't been sick now in over 20 years. Good Luck!

  • I would have them removed.. I used to have the same problem and mine were always larger than normal and I would have strep throat and tonsillitis all the time and when I was like 8 I had them removed
