On the right side. It's painless.
Sorry I didn't mean to do that. Could it be from allergies? I'm a bit of a hypochondriac and want to put my worries to rest.
I'm also on my period. Could it be hormonal as well?
Ok cause it felt bigger before my period and then it shrunk. Am I just crazy?
Hi Dr. Robert,
I started taking Allegra. I have not done these test. the node is still a little enlarged and now my tonsil is a little enlarged as well with white patches on it, but other than that no new symptoms so going to wait another month until I get the biopsy. Should I be worried about cancer if it's still enlarged at that point?
Yes please. It's about 2cm big. I went to the ENT two weeks ago who told me to keep an eye on it if it got bigger which it hasn't, and I've had no additional symptoms. I had strep at the end of June and I also have bad allergies. It's been very hot in LA which is not helping. I started taking Allegra about 3 days ago. I'm just worried the amount of time it's been there, because when you google that everything says cancer. But I have no other symptoms.
For example if I move my head a certain way you wouldn't even know it's there, but if I extend my neck out you can kind of see it. I can move it yes.
Thank you very much Dr. Thomas. May I ask if I could get a number for you in case I worry about something else? I can be a bit of a hypochondriac and would very much like reassurance like this from time to time. :)
Hi Dr. Thomas
I noticed I have puss pockets on both sides of my tonsils. I have been gargling salt water. My lymph node seems to have gotten a little smaller, and when I press on it it feels a little tender. Does this mean I am healing? It's def allergies, I have been taking Allegra but the mucus in the back of my throat is not going away.
Yes could you please respond. Thank you. :)
Yes. No redness and no swelling of tonsil. White patches on the one and just puss pockets around the tonsils. Could this be allergies?
My goal is to provide you with excellent service and a complete answer. If I have completely answered your question, please remember to provide a positive rating so that I can be compensated for my time. If you have any further questions or need clarification, please let me know.
Well I don't know what it is, but there are extra lumps around my tonsils, and I feel a tightening in my throat. I think it's allergies. Should I be worried?
I have really bad post nasal drip and the Allegra is not working for that. What should I do for that? I believe it's the mucus traveling up my throat at night that is effecting my tonsils.
Ok so I shouldn't worry about the current inflamation of my tonsils. I don't see puss just lumps near the tonsil and it feels like something is caught in the back of my throat.
Thank you. Allergies have been very bad lately I'm in LA and there is a heat wave going on which makes them all the worse. I've never had such bad allergies. However I had taking pills and all this so you think the nasal spray is the best option? Any natural remedies you recommend?
