The tonsils are a pair of soft tissue masses located at the rear of the throat. Each tonsil is composed of tissue similar to lymph nodes, covered by pink mucosa. Running through the mucosa of each tonsil are pits, called crypts.
The tonsils are part of the lymphatic system, which helps to fight infections. However, removal of the tonsils does not seem to increase susceptibility to infection. Tonsils vary widely in size and swell in response to infection.
Types of Tonsils:
Ø Acute tonsillitis: A bacteria or virus infects the tonsils, causing swelling and a sore throat. The tonsil may develop a gray or white coating.
Ø Chronic tonsillitis: Persistent infection of the tonsils, sometimes as a result of repeated episodes of acute tonsillitis.
Ø Peritonsillar abscess: An infection creates a pocket of pus next to the tonsil, pushing it toward the opposite side. Peritonsillar abscesses must be drained urgently.
Ø Acute mononucleosis: Usually caused by the Epstein-Barr virus, “mono” causes severe swelling in the tonsils, fever, sore throat, rash, and fatigue.
Ø Strep throat: Streptococcus, a bacterium, infects the tonsils and throat. Fever and neck pain often accompany the sore throat.
Ø Enlarged tonsils: Large tonsils reduce the size of the airway, making snoring or SLEEP APNEA more likely.
Ø Tonsilloliths: Tonsil stones, or tonsilloliths, are formed when this trapped debris hardens, or calcifies.
Symptoms of Tonsils:
Ø a very sore throat
Ø difficulty swallowing or painful swallowing
Ø a scratchy-sounding voice
Ø bad breath
Ø stomach aches
Ø a stiff neck
Ø jaw and neck tenderness
Ø tonsils that appear red and swollen
Ø tonsils that have white or yellow spots
