Customer Question
I have one large...

I have one large tonsil and tender painful lymph nodes on the same side of my neck of the large tonsil.i don’t really have pain in mouth but can tell it’s there. I’m 20 years old, male, college student, drink on weekends. Not smoker

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the neck pain? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

I’ve had this neck pain for a while. Had a biopsy done in August for the same lymph node.No signs of cancer. The feeling in my neck is more of a stiff tightness to it.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Had strep in October of this year , and also had strep 2 times earlier this year. Always have had sinus issues. In the occasion i do have a sore throat, it feels like it is sorer on the side of the enlarged tonsil

All the symptoms you have described are related and the cause seems to chronic tonsillitis which can be due to infection and lymph node is enlarged due to the same reason as all the areas of head and neck drains in these nodes thus causing them to get enlarged . I would recommend you to see an ENT specialist for thorough examination and further management to cure it completely. He might suggest tonsillectomy.
