is it normal to have a permanently enlarged tonsil and lymph node on the right side? i had a terrible infection 10+ years ago and it never went down.

Specializes in ENT and Head and Neck Surgery
Tonsil: Probably just asymmetric tonsil given the amount of time. Better to have ENT check it if matter for concern
