i posted the other day about my 8 year old enlarged tonsils, but today i was looking in his throat (again and noticed that one tonsil is larger than the other, i stupidly googled this (double ) and came up with lots of horror storys of what this could be, so pleeease can anyone tell me if their own child/ren have one tonsil larger than the other? *slopes of to hide and wait for answers lol*

Hi, not realy much help but best to get it looked at, my dss had large tonsils which were touching making it hard to eat solid food, he had his taken out and is now alot better.

If its not causing him any problems i would'nt be too worried but still best to get it checked out at least to put your mind at rest.

Both my dd's have lots of tonsillitis,and it has left them with large tonsils.They also have one larger than the other.I had glandular fever when i was 13 and now have large tonsils one bigger than the other.I think the infection damages the tonsils.HTH

I was at the consultant today with DS for his nasal probs. He has huge tonsils (like me!)and sometimes one does look bigger! The consultant said that if he is isn't having sore throats or difficulty in swallowing then there is no probs with them being huge! In fact, he has referred him for his adenoids out but isn't touching his tonsils.

My tonsils are revolting and I too have paranoid moments if I look really closely at them and convince myself that there are "things" going on!

Sorry, rambling, but if you are really worried then take him/her to GP who should be able to put your mind at rest.
