Thanks for the valuable info you had given.I've taken a close look at your question & the reply and come up with the following answer:
The symptoms you have described is most probably due to enlarged lymph node.
Lymph node infection is called Lymphadenitis.It is a common complication of certainbacterial infections such as streptococcus or staphylococcus.A biopsy andculture of the affected area or node may reveal the cause of the inflammation.
You need following tests:-Complete blood count(CBC)
-Fine needle aspiration cytology(FNAC)
-Antinuclear antibody tests
Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) may be done.In this technique, a thin, hollowneedle is inserted into the mass/lump to extract cells that will be examinedunder a microscope. based on this the exact diagnosis can be made.As you are having an ongoing tonsil infection,this can be the most probable cause of your enlarged lymph nodes.
Antibiotics may be prescribed if a bacterial infection is confirmed.The lymph node lump will subside by its own as the infection will get cured.
There is nothing serious about this.
Hope this helped
