ds1 (8yrs) has always had fairly big tonsils and a lumpy neck but today they are huge- half a centimetre off touching? Also when he lifts his head you can see a big lump on the front left side of his neck which feels hard and olive sized. He feels well, although he has been swallowing alot and ive noticed his voice sounds differnt over last week or so. Does this need checking out? Thanks
I recently had a throat infection possibly tonsilitus. all I had to start with where enlarged tonsils. I went to the doctors and have needed 3 courses of antibiotics. After the second lot I left it thinking it was a lot better, felt a lot worse then I ever did initially.
I guess what I'm saying it's get it checked proto, he could be feeling rather ill by Monday. oddly it didn't hurt that much to start with. and I've had tonsilties before and know how painful it should be. I almost didn't go to the doctors to start with didn't think I was ill enough.
