I am a 30 year old female and have been dealing with an array of symptoms over the past few months. About 6 months ago I started experiencing chest discomfort only on the right side, a feeling of a lump in the throat on the right side, along with asthma flaring. I was prescribed acid reflux medication and Singulair to help control the asthma. My doctor believed it was reflux that was contributing to my asthma symptoms.
Fast forward 2 months, I was still dealing with the 'lump in throat' feeling and I noticed my right tonsil was bigger than my left. It was a fleshy, hard bulge instead of laying flat against my throat like the left one. No pain, and my ENT said to just keep an eye on it.
Fast forward 3 more months to current time and my right tonsil is still swollen, hard, and now painful. I went for a CT scan to make sure there were no masses in my throat or neck that were missed and everything came back clear.
I am scheduled for a full tonsillectomy to biopsy the tissue on 2/8/17. I am so nervous because of my active asthma but it has to be done. I am also nervous because everything I Google says that assymetrical tonsils equal cancer. Has anyone experiences assymetrical tonsils and had the results not be sinister?
