Common Questions and Answers about What does one swollen tonsil mean

swollen

That's just why I was a little worried about the tonsil being still swollen - though it does look much better than when it was awfully swollen with tons of pus. I guess five weeks from the onset of mono would still be fighting the virus? I know it can last awhile, just wasn't sure if it was normal for a tonsil (one side) to be swollen for so long.
inflammatory or neoplastc coindition may be considered. The radiologist does not mention a mass or size. Does that mean it is too small? Any help?
I have just had a throat infection. One tonsil was more swollen than the other and my GP put me on anti biotics. I have finished these just over two weeks but I noticed I do have a swollen epiglottis. Its very enlarged and red and it too is touching the back of my tongue and making me feel like I have something in my throat. I cough during the night and my hubby has said I am snoring!. I have checked on web sites and it sounds like it is epiglottitis.
As I said, this is probably all irrevelant to the vision problem, but I thought that maybe since all of this is on the right side of my head, which is the same side as the problem eye, it could somehow be involved. Does anyone have any ideas of what could cause one-time temporary night blindness in one eye? Thank you for reading!
I find it amazing that your doctor accepts you are having a serious allergic reaction and warns you anaphylaxis could be next but does nothing to help you establish what is causing the oedema in your mouth & elsewhere! She should refer you to an allergy specialist for further testing; any reaction as severe as yours, especially involving swelling of the tongue, should be taken extremely seriously.
Also, all the symptomes listed on CFIDS are not the only one, you may get it different, who knows what type of symptomes you may have , everyone has different one. Yes, you are correct, adneral glands are not working properly in us, but inorder to make that happen, we have to work at it. On your medicine list, I do not see. L-Lysine 1000 MG Lysine is very important, since your body does not have it and it suppress many form of herpes virus. ---------------- P.S. Do u have ear pain ?
About a month after my surgery, another lymph node to the left of the one they took out has swollen up as big as the one they removed! It has been a year and a half since they surgery and it is still swollen. They say not to worry, that sometimes lymph node swelling is unexplainable.
I have had my tonsils and adenoids taken out when I was 16 because of frequent infection and one tonsil constantly swollen. Other than this, I a have been healthy. When i first noticed the swollen gland in my groin, i went to the gyno. He told me that he thought it was just my lymph nodes clearing up a virus, and to come back in a month. I was supposed to go back a day ago, but got my period. This recently happened a second time after i drank alcohol the night before. What do you think this is?
Should we go in to see someone or wait this out to see if it is a nasty flu that will get better? What does it mean that my throat problems came back? Why are some of his symptoms more severe than mine were?
I had an ultrasound at a week and a half of being on the antibiotics and the radiologist said my lymph nodes and salivary glands appeared normal even though the tech who did the ultrasound said she definitely thought my submandibular salivary gland was swollen.

HI, Having a large tonsil does not mean that something is terribly wrong. They can be because of repeated throat infection causing chronic tonsillitis. There are scientific journal studies regarding tonsilar asymmetry and it seems that they recommend ruling out a malignant causes since the majority of unilateral enlargements are present in lymphomas. Consult an ENT specialist for an evaluation. The answer is based on information provided.
I still worry because after then about 2-3 months after I got a really bad cold with a sore throat also since then I've had one swollen tonsil. I dont know if that is a sign or not. I do not talk to that guy anymore and am scared to get tested. Also, 6 months after months after my possible exposure, I got a stomach virus and was in the hospital for a week. My CBC tests showed that my white blood cells were normal. Does this mean I am fine? I still have that one swollen tonsil.
Thyroid peroxidase antibodies are implicated in both Grave's disease and Hashimoto's Thryoiditis and they can co-exist and cause most if not all of your symptoms. Does ablation mean you had all of your thyroid destroyed? If not, then if there is any part of your thyroid still functioning then that could be the problem. There are also related diseases and conditions caused by the pituitary and anterior pituitary as well as adrenal glands that can cause those problems.
I developped a sore throat two weeks after that has been ongoing for four weeks now. I can see at the back of my throat it is really red and swollen near my tonsil. antibiotics did not work. I did a complete blood test the other day and it showed that my globulin protein was slightly elevated. What is my risk from hiv? Does my blood test hint at infection?
Good God, I don't know if it is more comforting, or disturbing to know THAT THERE ARE OTHER PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT SUFFER WITH THIS HUGELY DISGUSTING "ALIEN" TONSIL THINGIE, THAT I HAVE GOIN' ON! WHICH MUST MEAN I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO MUST NOT REALLY BE A NATIVE OF THIS PLANET!
I had swollen left tonsil with white patches on it along with ear pains and stuff after 2 weeks of exposure with unprotected vaginal sex; I'm very afraid if they are symptoms of HIV ; But my left tonsil and ear pain is just gone in less than 24 hours after they appeared. Do you think if it's caused by bacteria or viral (like hiv or so?) I would like to add that i'm exposed to heavy cold in the same day that i had unprotected sex. Ah and.. it tonsils are a lymph gland or not?
Hi, I have sorethroat for about 6 weeks now, my doctor has diagonised me and said Its an Viral Infection and my tonsils are partially red. I am currently using antibiotics to cure from last 3 days. I have question here does Lymphnodes & Tonsils are the same?? When people say Lymphnodes are swollen does it mean tonsils?? Please clarify...
to him but Ultrasonogram showed my left lymph node was swollen and my left tonsil was swollen as well. By this time , I had a little clogged/itchy ears , I could feel sinus drainage from within my nose but couldnt cough enough to visibly see it. I developed swollen tonsils on day 25 and developed headache. I did not have fever till now, although my mother checked me with her hands and said my skin felt warm. Upon using thermometers my body temp was 37.
Currently, that dry throat has now developed into my left tonsil becoming swollen and i feel it when i swallow and when i touch it , my right tonsil has possibly become swollen as well and also feel it when i swallow. What does this mean in terms of hiv after having those cold-like symptoms that started 2-weeks ago?
Although it sounds like a no risk situation, I am a bit worried about the quality of the condom, specially since I woke up today with a sore tonsil. My right tonsil hurts a little bit and seems kind of swollen. Altogether, It feels like having a sore throat. I donĀ“t have any other symptoms, as of yet. Assuming the condom was not reliable (it did not break or fall apart but seemed to be of dubious quality), could ARS symptoms (such as this one) appear after the 5 week mark?
Three weeks after this exposure I started having very bad sinus attack - runny and stuffy nose and chest, cough with mucus, pain in cheeck bones, eyes, forehead etc and sore throat. Except for one day when I had fever of 99.5F for two hrs, I did not have any fever, rash or swollen nodes. I may have little bit of tonsil though (or may be anxiety!). I started taking antibiotic one week back (during 4th week post exposure).
I went to a clinic today to have a throat culture to check for strep and the doctor said my lymph nodes are mildy swollen she said on a scale of 1-10 they are a one. My temperature was back to normal, 98.2. Do you think I have a garden variety cold brought on by SEVERE anxiety and lack of eating and sleeping? Or does it sound like it could be ARS?
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. You mentioned your ex having a staph infection, I wouldnt think you'd be affected by that unless your throat/mouth cam in contact with the infected skin.
I finished that a week ago, and the right tonsil remains swollen. Throat doesn't really hurt at all. Right tonsil is still swollen today. 3. Floater in eye vision. It sounds foolish I know but it literally came out of nowhere and is still there. And when I would look across any lit area it would appear like a film was glaring across the lighting after I already focused in (Sounds weird I know).
with infected saliva? 4) Can you make it clear to me what are the only routes of transmittion, and does there have to be a lot of infected fluid to get infected? 5) I think Im worrying myself to death, I think I have a fever, and feel hot, I think I feel itchy, rashy, I think I have some issues on HIV ..? and risk, I mean I cannot even kiss someone and not think all these horrible things about HIV and me..Should I be tested??
Lozenges do nothing for her, its hurting her ear, hurts to talk, and only thing seeming to help a little is prescribed Ibuprofen. It's worrying me to death , my right tonsil is still swollen as well but it isn't painful like hers nor have I been spitting any blood. Still have this unexplained floater in my eye too that the eye examiner didn't find a reason for. I'll continue to post up to the end of my window period and anything else that happens .
Maybe I really am having ARS. Is a symptom of ARS a swollen tonsil with white bumps on it? Most people with mono get high fevers and horrible sore throats. I had a very mild fever that is now gone and no sore throat, just a sore tonsil. does this sound like ARS? I am also sweaty and keep feeling hot but I have no fever.
