Common Questions and Answers about Swollen tonsils pictures

swollen

My dilemma is that for the previous 2 or 3 years, I have had an enlarged right tonsil. Both of my tonsils are swollen, but the right is much worse than the left. As long as I can remember, I have had chronc head and throat problems. I had multiple ear infections (always in the right ear) and my ear drum busted twice as a grade schooler. Since my early teen years, I have had chronic sore throats and it usually seemed to be the most red and inflamed on the right side.
HPV is a virus, therefore if it came in contact with your mouth/throat..your tonsils might get swollen because theyre trying to fight off the virus. However, you just having swollen tonsils does not mean you Have HPV. You could very well have a cold/virus other than what they're able to test for. If you don't have any visible papillomas though, there's no way a dr could run an hpv test (biopsy) for your throat.
Sometimes I can feel a bit of pain coming from the tonsil area, but not severe. I've taken 2 pages of really good pictures of my oropharynx and the lumps/ affected tonsils, and you can see quite some detail. You can view them here: (copy and paste link) http://www.flickr.
I can't afford going to the doctor so many times for the medications and all that and I'm starting to worry if this might be something more then just giant tonsils. What should i do? and what do you think is wrong with my tonsils? If you want me to put up pictures I'd be more then happy to do so just ask.
hi im a 19 year old female and i have been having earaches, sore neck, fatiuged,sore tonsils, and a pea size lump on the back of my tongue near my tonsils i have been to the doctos two times saying the bump will go down after the medicine but hasn't and i still feel all the syptoms although the bump doesn't hurt at all the first time he gave me medicine for a virual infection for two weeks and it didn't work then prescribed me bacterial infection medcine for a week and this isn't working either
I have lost over 17 pounds ( ok not such a bad thing, but not for a good reason), my back of my throat is swollen as well as my voice box, which are swollen quite badly. I cough to the extreme as to try and clear my throat.. to the point where I vomit, and my head feels like it is going to explode. I have had a Upper GI done and it came back no problems.. I think they need to do more tests and I am going to make sure they do................Oh and with this..
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. Someone help. I'm just a freaked out kid wanting an answer.
I've looked at my throat and I've had other people look at my throat (including my doctor) but when my doctor looked at it she said it didn't look abnormal (but that was before it started getting worse) and when I look at it I notice that it's not in my throat at all, but right at the areas where my tonsils were (they were removed well over 10 years ago).
com/photos/94581331@N03/8613050482/lightbox/ *** it's the lump on the right and a longer lump is growing past the tongue into the throat *** So I think I have HPV in my tonsils as I have fleshy bumps - not actually growing on my tonsils - but it's just like a part of my tonsil is swollen. I don't know if its a HPV wart - but if it was cancer due to HPV would warts show or not ? Also what's the chances of being a carrier of HPV if I have had my vaccination before being sexually active ?
Six days following exposure, I had a mild sore throat with a little bit of swollen tonsils and inflammation. Then about 4 weeks after, I had some white spots on my tonsils which I poked at and irritated further, causing a painful canker sore on one of them which resolved in a few days. Following all this, the back of my throat and tonsils have continuously been red and inflamed.
I have these white spots on my tonsils I think it may be thrush but there isn't nearly as much on there as most pictures online show. And I think my tonsils may be swollen but im really not sure as they aren't painful at all. also I have almost what seems like blisters in the bakc of my tongue, but again im not sure if these were present before or if they are showing up now. I"m kind of scared thinking I might have HIV due to the fatigue and sick feeling, could it be that?
It seems to get better with gargling and it doesn't hurt so bad, just kind of irritated and a little swollen lymph node on that side. I've attached pictures in my profile please look it over and let me know what you think. Should I go get a swab done or is it unnecessary? I don't know what it could be.
Looking back, long before diagnosis, I can remember having times where people would comment that my feet seemed swollen. I don’t remember much on the tongue part. Curious? Do you still have your tonsils, adenoids, and all that stuff?
Later they became chapped. On Dec. the 14th tested positive for mono with very mild sore throat, swollen tonsils, swollen nontender lymph nodes, and temp 99.5. The highest my temp had been was 101.1 Also my stool was a brown two tone color and kind of loose. Periods of nausea especially will eating or brushing teeth. I am concerned about all std's like HPV, Herpes, and HIV. I don't think this is herpes because it has been like this for some time and very slowly getting more noticable.
Now I have a sore throat with minor red and white patches, and my neck glands are swollen a little. It's been this way for about a week or so. From the pictures of strep throat I've seen, it doesn't look like that (the red dot type things), and the white is not like candiasis, more just like how your tonsils give off white when they're infected. I haven't had a fever yet. My stomach has been a bit upset, but I think this is from all the worrying and it's certainly not been diarrea.
I realized my vaginal entrance is almost obstructed by swollen, spongy gland. I was afraid, recalling the pictures of hpv. Over the past few days there has been significant improvement in my tonsils- the white covering is gone and I can eat again with minimal pain. However, the growths on my tongue are sill there, and though the swollen gland has neither grown nor shrunk, I m afraid of it. Is it possible to get hpv just through mouth kissing?
Anyway, when I looked I saw a round/oval shaped lump on the left side where tonsils should be. I went to our family doctor and she said I didn't have an infection or anything, and when I asked about the lump, she said it was a tonsil and that they can grow back. She did not see concerned. Now, five months later, I am still obsessing over this and have searched all over the internet for anything similar. Unfortunately I don't know if it just showed up or has been there for years.
I also have a sore throat and my tongue and mouth feels some what swollen, tonsils are also swollen. What would be give away signs that its oral herpes. How long does it take for a outbreak to occur its been a week since ive had sex with anyone and i used a condom for everything, but did kiss , i have already scheduled a blood and urine test to test for every std i can imagine and have to wait two weeks for the reults so i may be paranoid but i want as much information as possible..
The reactions are everywhere in the body, headache, serious sinus problems, boils in the face, skin rashes, dizziness, light headed, low back pain, anxiety and trouble urinating. My tonsils are always red, but not swollen and I am always extremely tired and experience difficulties in concentrating at work. The allergic reactions comes and goes, sometimes I can eat soy, but not right now.
I have had a sore throat that is red around the tonsil pillars? in front of the tonsils and a little to the roof and back tongue. It feels dry, and Im not sure if i had it before the encounter or not as i do sleep with my mouth open. He said he was std free, but who knows. The sore throat has never gone into where its hard to eat or swallow or drink fluids. I have since that day been able to eat and drink anything. some days its a little worse, but mostly just a dry feeling.
When I saw the Oral Surgeon a bit ago (before this) he said that my lingual tonsils were swollen (this is very uncomfortable - food gets caught in them and it affects breathing and swallowing etc) which is highly irregular - as well that my right tonsil had 'grown back'... (i've had them removed.) I've had those 'extra' tonsils none of us know about get inflamed on many occasions and this seems to happen around the same time.
My tongue got a little swollen/numb especially in the morning. I decided to take a closer look at my tongue and noticed some painless white bumps at the back of the two sides of my tongue. Day 3: My tongue was still a little swollen/numb. I could say that I played / moved a lot my tongue during that day. Day 4: I woke up in the morning and my tongue didn't feel swollen/numb anymore. However, I had pain at the base of my lingual frenulum.
I didn't feel right for months and my tonsils have been swollen since then. At this time I was diagnosed as having chronic sinusitis. I lost 10 pounds and was my skinniest ever at 132 lbs. I had irregular periods. In January 2010, during my second pregnancy I started to have severe bowel issues with bleeding and sorry if tmi mucous. I had a partial sigmoidoscopy and was told they thought it was ulcerative colitis or crohn's. They refused to allow me any meds even though I was in severe pain.
I can't remember when I first noticed that my tonsils were swollen because it came on gradually, but it was at most 1 to 2 days after this sexual exposure (however, I could have actually noticed it before this exposure but I just can't remember bc I didn't think much of it at the time). Anyway, I went to one of those walk-in clinics earlier today and they tested me for strep, which came back negative. They said it was probably just a virus and would pass on its own.
For the last 3 months I have developed a number of bizarre symptoms that I cant seem to shake. I am usually a healthy guy and never get sick. I developed a sore swollen throat with white spots on tonsils and ulcers around uvula and towards esophagus. Also white coated tongue and for awhile burning mouth and frothy saliva. My doctor definitely confirmed a yeast bacterial infection but nothing like thick curdlike pictures of thrush.
2 days after sore throat, then turned into a week long flu like sickness, when that week ended i had a swollen neck for about a week, tonsils also seemed very irritated. I could feel the pain slightly in my ears, and it was uncomfortable to turn my head. after that cooled down i thought i was in the clear. but when that week long neck swelling ended. exactly 21 days after my possible exposure. i found a small cluster line of tiny white pinhead dots under my mid upper lip.
Feels like my legs and arms dont get enough blood. - Eczema spreading more in hands - Swollen tonsils and one of glands in near throat swollen (still persistent after two weeks!!). - I find tiny tiny red spots in my body - Big red bumps on my hips..I have often big pimples on my hips but these are a very similar but they dont seem to have the yellow stuff in them. not sure. - Muscle twitching (tiny shaking) in different part of arms and legs. Comes and goes. Been going for two weeks now.
But wait, why wont these symptoms go away doc? Swollen tonsils for three months, tongue is still white, lost 20 pounds of muscle all over my body with alot of pain, aches, fungus, had parasites, dull testicular pains and what seems like my nuts are shrinking, many tiny redish brown dots that itch a little at first then become freckles or something, swollen lymph nodes and at the beginng had all the regular symptoms.
Hi, I have swollen tonsils every so often .one time i even went to the doctor and he prescribed penicillin.He said I had strep throat and told me to take ibuprofen. My problem is that right know i don't have insurance and don't know if there is something over the counter to subsitute that.
Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum. Did she have an appointment with the surgeon after surgery?....I had surgery in May also and saw my NS 3 weeks later.....my next appointment is in Dec. U should get in touch with the dr as other related conditions can be triggered from a PFD or she may have an infection or a CSF leak. Everyone"s rate of healing will be different, but she is approx 2 months post op, so I would get on the phone ASAP and talk with her dr.
