A 25-year-old female asked:
Left tonsil slightly larger than right. very mild - no pain swallowing. no issues breathing. feel as though something is stuck in tonsil or feeling tonsil itself because its swollen? this same issue happened around a month ago and has returned?

Doctor can evaluate: Throat symptoms can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics needed), a cold or mild flu (antibiotics are not used), or from some other cause such as allergies, irritants, or other viruses like EBV (causes mono). Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away in a day or two (mainly to check for strep throat).
