Different sizes.: To some degree asymmetrical tonsils are normal. just like one hand may be larger or one leg longer. On the other hand, if one is larger because of a disease state (infection, cancer...), then treatment is indicated. Like most findings in medicine, the significance depends on the background. A full medical history and physical exam are needed to make the correct diagnosis.
