Many things: The cause of the asymmetry of the lingual tonsils can be best determined after several questions are considered such as the presence of pain and if so, the duration. Do you have any allergies. Is this something that you have recently noticed and if so have any other changes have presented. It would be best for you to visit your dentist or an oral maxillofacial surgeon for a visual evaluation.
