Left Tonsil Swollen
I am posting because I am scared, as I imagine many other are who post here. I have been struggling with sinus/nasal congestion in my left nostril only; it seems like there may be a sore or wound in there somewhere as I’ve blown out what looks like bloody scabs. I’ve also had thick green mucus, which i clear by blowing my nose and then the congestion returns in an hour or so. My nasal passages also feel raw sometimes, like when cool air hits a scab on your arm or something. It been pesky, but it’s been going on for 2-3 months now and that’s alarming. My husband and I thought it might be the dry air but I just don’t know. Seems like it would affect the other nostril as well if that were the case. In the last two weeks, I have felt what feels like a lump in my throat, on the left side. I have checked in the mirror and the tonsil on the left is slightly larger than the other one. I’m guessing that is causing the sensation. I just got a prescription for antibiotics to see if I can’t clear up what’s happening in my sinuses. I can’t stop wondering if it is cancer. I have had no fever, no headache, no sore throat. Has anyone had a similar experience? How was your outcome?
