Ear, Nose, and Throat Disorders

Adult tonsils

09/15/2009

Question:

I read where your tonsils disappear as you get older, this lead me to your site. It doesn`t seem like I have any tonsils left but I have a lot of scarring on the left side and am trying everything to make it look better. I have insurance and would wonder if I could set up and appointment. I am sure this comes from poor hygiene and weak immune system from the past, but I am trying to get some answers on this problem, I work at a call center and have very slight soreness after talking a long time always on the side where the tonsil is much scarred. Thanks.

Answer:

I am sorry but I do not understand your question. It would probably be best to see your local ENT to describe your concern.
