The: The main question one needs to know is why have you been recommended to have your tonsils removed? Recurrent tonsillitis is the main reason for recommending tonsillectomy. Other reasons are tonsillar enlargement leading to airway obstruction and a mass presenting in the tonsil where malignancy may be of concern. An online evaluation is most difficult.

I have this mass that my doctor thought was a cyst but it's still here after 9 months. Had 2 ultrasounds. I'm not in pain but I am concerned.?

Depends: Entirely on where the cyst is and on the size. Assuming it's ovarian, your doctor may choose to continue following by ultrasound and only do something else if it becomes painful or is enlarging.

Follow doc's orders, get follow-up ultrasounds & hang tight. Too early to tell. Calm mom = calm baby. ...Read more
